Upgrades on the way for Clarence Town Road in Hunter region
The Federal Liberal and Nationals Government has announced $20 million to deliver upgrades for Clarence Town Road in the New South Wales Hunter region.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the investment will deliver targeted upgrades along the full length of the road between Raymond Terrace and Dungog.
“These upgrades will improve safety, transport efficiency and connectivity for people travelling to work and for businesses getting goods to markets,” Mr McCormack said.
“The commitment is part of the Government’s nationwide investment under its Roads of Strategic Importance (ROSI) initiative. ROSI funding will improve access for communities throughout our regions and stimulate local industries.”
Federal Member for Lyne David Gillespie said Clarence Town Road investment will support the creation of jobs for the Hunter Region, particularly for Dungog Shire.
“The Federal Liberal and Nationals Government has a proud track record of delivering the infrastructure the Hunter and North Coast need to grow and thrive, whether it’s completing the Pacific Highway upgrade between Port Macquarie and Kempsey or delivering vital community infrastructure,” Dr Gillespie said.
“I look forward to working with the community and stakeholders to identify the exact scope of works to be delivered.
“We will investigate measures such as widening, resealing and road reconstruction in order to improve safety and deliver a more efficient Clarence Town Road.”
