Completed: Linton-Mannibadar Road Upgrade
Residents and visitors will enjoy a safer, smoother journey on the Linton-Mannibadar Road, following the completion of Council’s significant upgrade project.
The Linton-Mannibadar Road works featured the widening and sealing of the existing 5.5km of narrow sealed road, extending from the Rokewood-Shelford Road towards Linton.
The $1.4 million project was funded by a $933,000 grant from the Victorian Government’s Fixing Country Roads program and $466,666 from the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery Program.
Mayor Cr Owen Sharkey said Council is delighted to deliver the much-desired road upgrade.
“Residents of the north-west of Golden Plains Shire who regularly travel Linton-Mannibadar Road will certainly experience the difference following the completion of this key road project. With 5.5km of wider sealed road, it provides a safer, better travel route for all vehicles, including those from the surrounding farms.
“Delivering this important $1.4 project with Federal and State Government grants has allowed Council to redirect its road budget to additional works across the Shire.
“The upgrade was the top priority on the Mannibadar Community Plan 2017-2020 and Council is pleased to have completed this project for the benefit of our local communities.”
