Mullaley residents are hopeful that the Grain Valley Road is one step closer to being completely sealed.
Locals are waiting on state funding to be approved
Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said Gunnedah Shire Council’s application for $3.85 million under the Fixing Country Roads program has passed through the Roads, Maritime and Freight office and is now with Infrastructure NSW.
“It was assessed last week on Thursday [by the Department of Transport]… [and] it’s all good from transport,” Mr Anderson said,
‘Infrastructure NSW will now asses it, which we understand they’ve done, so we’re just waiting on that report, so hopefully they agree it should be funded.
“If infrastructure NSW back-up transport, and say it’s a great project, which we think it is, it just goes through to the treasurer to sign and off we go.
“We’re sweating on that report.”
Mullaley and Boggabri residents have been lobbying for more than 10 years for the remaining 17.4km of the gravel road to be sealed.
