Five of Wollondilly’s most notorious roads are set to be upgraded in the next financial year.

Remembrance Driveway and Burragorang, Tylers, Silverdale and Picton roads will receive almost $3 million dollars in upgrade funds.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian made the announcement as part of the latest round of the Saving Lives on Country Roads and Liveable and Safe Urban Communities initiatives. 

The $2,974,950 in funds will be delivered in 2019-20 through six projects on Wollondilly roads to help save lives. 

Wollondilly Liberal candidate Nathaniel Smith said the upgrades would make a huge difference to local lives. 

“From the first day of my campaign, I’ve been hearing from the local community about road safety – and I am absolutely thrilled that the Liberal Government has delivered millions of dollars to make roads across the Wollondilly electorate safer, in addition to the 2018-19 funding,” he said.

“The $182 million invested in road safety upgrades across the state during the next financial year includes the delivery of 224 new projects, as well as the $141 million invested from the Saving Lives On Country Roads program. 

“Not only is the Berejiklian government fixing road black spots, but it’s also delivering safer roads.”
