Ahead of the upcoming NSW State Election next month, a regional council is calling on the government for support in repairing and improving its freight networks.
For the Port Stephens Council, located around 2.5 hours out of Sydney, roads are at the top of the agenda.
Mayor Ryan Palmer said, “Roads are our number one priority in the upcoming election. We’ve had a huge amount of damage to our road network over the past two years and we need urgent funding to replace, repair and upgrade our road network.
“We also need to see commitment for State Government investment in major infrastructure projects like the Bucketts Way and Medowie Road M1 intersections to increase road safety, improve freight networks and reduce travel times.”
