Making our roads safer
Published Friday, 15th June 2018
Council has almost completed an additional $3.4 million program of road works this financial year, thanks to successful applications for Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) grants.
Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said trouble spots across the City were targeted for the upgrades.
“Fairfield City Council constantly monitors our roads and listens to community concerns to identify and address trouble spots for improved safety,” Mayor Carbone said.
“Investing in our roads is investing in the safety of Fairfield City residents and families.
“Our successful RMS applications provide another source of funding so we can do more works on top of our normal operating budget from rates and charges.
“In addition to the $3.4 million grants from RMS, Council has invested $13.3 million on road upgrades.
In the 2018/19 financial year, Council will also invest $13.6 million to renew and upgrade 38km of road.”
