Fixing Country Roads

Fixing Country Roads provides funding to local councils to repair and upgrade roads throughout regional NSW. So far, $92.85 million has been allocated across 141 projects to improve and build efficient freight transport networks to reduce costs for businesses.

The program helps to fund projects that better connect local and regional roads to state highways and key freight hubs, such as silos, saleyards, rail heads, supermarket distribution centres, industrial parks and depots.

Applications for the third round of Fixing Country Roads closed on Friday 1 September 2017.
