“I am pleased the Government has put its money where its mouth is for Tester’s Hollow.
The Federal Budget contains $15 million for the upgrade of Cessnock Road over 4 years, including $500,000 in the next 12 months for investigation.
Our community has lobbied long and hard for this road to be raised above flood levels.
And Labor, at state and federal levels, has dragged the government kicking and screaming to the table.
The Federal Government has kept its promise. We now need the NSW State Government to commit to increase its meagre commitment of $2million and get on with fixing this road.”
