The Federal Member for Aston, Hon Alan Tudge MP, has announced that Knox Council will receive over $3 million for local road construction and street repairs.
As part of the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery Programme, Knox Council will receive over $3 million throughout 2014-2019 to improve streets in Knox, including more than $500,000 in the next financial year.
Mr Tudge said this was great news for Knox residents and businesses.
“These funds will deliver safer local streets for Knox, allowing Knox Council to repair roads that are long overdue for an upgrade.
“If you know a road you believe should be upgraded, speak up and contact the Council,” Mr Tudge said.
The funding announcement is in addition to the $81,900 recently announced by Mr Tudge to fix four dangerous Napoleon Road black spots in Rowville.
The approved Black Spot projects for Rowville will see exclusive right turn lanes built for Napoleon Road at the intersections of Affleck Way, Teofilo Drive, Anthony Drive and Bark Avenue, with work to be completed by July 2015.
“Napoleon is busy road and this will funding will make a real difference,” said Mr Tudge.
