Member for Dubbo Troy Grant visited Ballimore today to look over the progress being made with the upgrade of the Golden Highway and Gowan Road intersection. The work, due for completion this September, is being undertaken courtesy of a $1.4 million state budget allocation for improvements to traffic flow and the removal of the notorious black spot.

"Road safety is a high priority especially when it involves large traffic volumes and school children," said Mr Grant.

"Having spoken to a number of locals about this issue last year, I was determined to ensure that the funding required to improve the road would be delivered".

"School buses frequently use this intersection and by improving the road surface, it should go a long way towards ensuring the children's safety.

The Member for Dubbo also inspected work on the construction of new toilet facilities in Thelma Pelosi Park. This has come about courtesy of a NSW Government Community Building Partnership Grant.

Mr Grant's Ballimore visit also afforded him the opportunity to meet with a number of local residents to discuss community issues.

"Receiving firsthand accounts from Ballimore residents gives me a clearer understanding of concerns within the town," said Mr Grant.

The NSW Government will continue to deliver upon its infrastructure improvements for Ballimore residents.

Road widening and other repairs on Main Road 347 from Bogan River to Trangie are now complete, the Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said today.

Mr Grant said the $800,000 project included work on the section of road about 5 kilometres from Bogan River towards Trangie.

“This work was completed with $400,000 state funding from Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and matching funds from Narromine Shire Council under the REPAIR program,” said Mr Grant.

“The road was widened to provide two improved travel lanes and plus sealed shoulders over three sections of the road.

“The project provides a wider and smoother road for motorists, along with newly sealed shoulders.”
