Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin says the funding is to help councils with urgent road repairs, maintenance, and repair of potholes.

“Over the past few years our roads have taken a battering from floods and storms and landslips, and this funding can help councils with priority repairs.

“Each council has been notified of the funding they will receive, which is based on kilometres of roads they manage.

TENTERFIELD 1685 $4,306,702
TWEED 1247 $3,187,215
LISMORE 1215 $3,105,205
KYOGLE 1196 $3,056,426
BYRON 609 $1,556,547

“This funding builds on funds councils received earlier this year under the Regional and Local Road Repair Program.  The funding means councils can get on with the ongoing recovery work on our roads, to make journeys safer for all road users.
