GEILSTON Bay residents will now have a smoother drive on Derwent Avenue with the completion of resurfacing works between Sunhaven Avenue and Musgrove Road.
The Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery Program provided a $650,000 bonus to the Clarence City Council to undertake the roadworks and build a new pedestrian footpath.
Alderman Brendan Blomeley said he welcomed the completion of the works.
“As a local resident who frequents this road by car and when walking my dog, I can already see the benefit to road and pedestrian safety that this project has delivered,” he said.
The Roads to Recovery Program makes a valuable contribution to safety, economic and social outcomes through supporting maintenance of the nation’s road.
“It is important that the Federal Government continue to provide the support for local government in the provision of vital infrastructure such as roads and I’m very pleased that Geilston Bay has been a substantial beneficiary,” Tasmanian Liberal Senator Eric Abetz said.
“I’m pleased that the government has been able to increase the allocation for the Roads to Recovery Program nationwide and the residents of Clarence are the beneficiaries of more than $3 million over the next five years.”
