ROAD UPGRADES ENSURING SMOOTHER DRIVE THROUGH TRENTHAM

Locals in Trentham now have a more reliable drive through town, with upgrades to five roads in the heart of Trentham complete.

Thanks to the Andrews Labor Government’s $290,343 investment through the Fixing Country Roads program, the upgrades to Bowen Street, Church Lane, Gamble Street, Forrest Street and Cranneys Lane have modernised and improved the state of previously unsealed roads.

The roads have been widened, sealed, while improved pavement and drainage has been installed.

The project will also reduce long term maintenance costs and protect other urban roads in Trentham in close proximity to the five roads.

These upgrades are part of the $1.5 million funding for Hepburn Shire Council from the second round of the Andrews Labor Government’s Fixing Country Roads program, which follows $500,000 from round one of the program.

The Labor Government’s $100 million Fixing Country Roads Program enables regional and rural Victorian councils to carry out important road rehabilitation and resealing works, road safety improvements, bridge strengthening and other upgrades.
