Shovels will hit the ground across the Parkes electorate as almost $6 million worth of projects have been approved to enhance local roads and community infrastructure, while supporting jobs and boosting the economy.

Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton, said that project approval for six councils in the Parkes electorate is part of Phase Two of the Government’s $1.5 billion Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.

“I’m pleased that local councils are spending this money, which will not only improve local roads and provide for new and upgraded amenities, it will also support job creation, local businesses and economic growth,” Mr Coulton said.
