A rail overpass, water project and road realignment are at the top of Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) wish list as the elections approach.
The council is seeking support from state and federal candidates for these and three other local priorities.
Councillors decided at an extraordinary meeting last month to "use every opportunity to lobby" for the project.
The council is wanting increased funding for the Quipolly water project, in view of the changes to water quality standards.
LPSC said the proposed rail overpass south of Werris Creek was vital because of community feedback on traffic hold-ups at the southern end of the rail crossing, due to long coal trains.
Increased traffic on the Gap Road has also caused the council to call for its realignment.
The other projects are: better funding for libraries, health care and home support services; more support for Royalties for Regions, in order to gain a fair share of mining contributions for local projects; and rate pegging relief to allow councils to address the infrastructure backlog.
“The list includes projects that the community, through the consultation process, has deemed to be essential,” LPSC mayor Andrew Hope said.
“If economic development is to continue successfully, it is vital that support continues, following the elections, to allow us to continue to build on the work to date.”
He said that these were all integral issues that would help the community within the LPSC when alleviated.
