Council receives $1.3 million from Safer Roads Program

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

Lismore City Council will receive $1.3 million in funding from the NSW Government for four road projects across the Lismore Local Government Area.

The funding has been allocated under the NSW Government Safer Roads Program for works in locations with a high vehicle accident rate.

“This is great news for Lismore as this funding allows us to undertake projects not contained within our scheduled roadworks program,” General Manager Gary Murphy said.

“We rely on funding from programs like this to fund additional works so this is a fantastic outcome for the Lismore community. These works are designed to cut our accident rates and are 100% funded by Roads and Maritime Services.”

The successful projects are:
