Almost 12 months on from the 2019 state election, many locals say not enough has been done to fix some of the region's roads.
Funding to the tune of $8.5 million for the sealing of Clifton Road has been recently announced, but both Shooters, Fishers and Farmers party member Jeff Bacon and community members say no new developments have been made on Rangari or Werris Creek roads.
Werris Creek residents took to Facebook to vent their frustrations, saying Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson "can't fix the roads he said he would".
Mr Bacon told Australian Community Media that Mr Anderson had promised millions for the roads if he was returned to office, "but no funding has been locked in yet, with the government searching for funding pathways".
"It's now more important than ever for Mr Anderson to come good with the funding for these upgrades," Mr Bacon said.
"Local communities and businesses are still trying to recover from the drought and now we are headed towards recession because of the coronavirus."
The SFF party member said bringing the projects forward would be a "welcome boost", and would positively lift the spirits of the community "at a time when they need it more than ever".
But Mr Anderson said the "process to designate the funding is underway".
"Rangari and Werris Creek roads are an election commitment that will be kept," he said.
"There is a process to resume the Rangari Road from the two councils - Gunnedah Shire Council and Tamworth Regional Council. That is under way and Rangari Road is right at the top of the list to be resumed.
"Tamworth Regional Council and Gunnedah Shire Council only fairly recently signed a [memorandum of understanding] to work together on [Rangari Road] and then it was named an election commitment."
