By November 24, 2021News, Roads

Orange roads are set to benefit from local infrastructure improvements, thanks to the NSW Government’s $75 million Resources for Regions Round 8 program.

Upper House MP Sam Farraway today announced $1,335,356 for Clergate Road upgrades, which will deliver stage 2 of the project.

“The upgrade of Clergate Road will include widening from Ralston Drive to Industry Drive, creating a much more efficient freight route for the industrial estate,” Sam Farraway said.

“Clergate Road is an important link to both a growing industrial estate including the giant new Storco project, and a new residential subdivision to the north. This is a critical piece of infrastructure for the growing industrial estate with works set to begin in the New Year.”

Orange City Council Mayor Cr Reg Kidd welcomed the news of the $1.3 million upgrades of Clergate Road.

“This used to be a narrow rural lane, that’s now a key piece of infrastructure through a growing industrial estate. Locals will be delighted that the next stage of the road is about to be upgraded,” Cr Reg Kidd said.

“As well as widening the road and upgrading the surface, this project will involve relocating a gas main that’s currently in the road shoulder. By the time we finish there’ll also be the kind of street lights and kerb and guttering that the community expects from a road of this standard.”

The Resources for Regions program is part of the $2 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure for regional communities.
