MANSFIELD is set to benefit from a $1.5 million boost to local roads after a joint funding announcement was made last week.
Visiting town on Friday, Labor Upper House member Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria), announced $1 million in State Government funding – money that will be pooled with $500,000 from the Mansfield Shire Council.
Together, the funds will allow for the completion of not only stage one of the Mansfield Heavy Vehicle Bypass, but also the replacement of the bridge on Lakins Road.
“These projects, funded by the Andrews Labor Government and Mansfield Shire Council, were identified by Mansfield Shire and will improve safety on local roads,” Ms Symes said.
“We know how important road safety is to country Victorians and that is why Labor is investing in local projects to make our roads safer.”
