POPULAR walking and cycling track Stock Road will be reconstructed and made safer for residents.
Gunnedah Shire Council will receive $411,375 to rebuild Stock Road, Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said.
"This is a great win for the local community and will result in smoother and safer journeys for residents," he said.
"A reliable road network is so important for our communities in the bush, so it's great that the Federal Government has turbocharged the NSW Government's $500 million Fixing Local Roads program by committing $191 million last year."
The road runs from the golf course in the west to the foot of Porcupine Lookout.
The funds come from the Fixing Local Roads program and Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said it was helping local councils repair, maintain and seal regional roads.
"NSW has a road network of more than 180,000 kilometres in length, and nearly 80 per cent is classified as local roads, so it is a real challenge for councils to effectively manage and maintain their road assets," he said.
"This program won't just ease the burden of maintenance for local councils, but it will deliver safer, more reliable journeys for all local road users.
"I am especially pleased with the allocation of over $411,000 for the reconstruction of Stock Road, Gunnedah."
The program is expected to fund 100 new road upgrades across the state and create 1000 jobs.
