State Budget To Benefit Bathurst and Orange

State Budget To Benefit Bathurst and Orange

Millions of dollars have been handed out to projects in the Orange and Bathurst electorates as part of the NSW budget announced yesterday.

 Member for Orange Andrew Gee says he is pleased with the funding commitment for the area, and the budget is a responsible one.

Mr Gee says the $13.71 million for the re-development of the Riverside centre means it will be 75 per cent complete by this time next year.

The re-development will allow the current centre to be replaced with a thirty bed facility on the Bloomfield campus and community-based homes close to the site with supported living arrangements.

The Nashdale Bridge was allocated $900 000, the TAFE Aboriginal learning centre secured $662 000 and $500 000 was given to realign Goanna Hill on the Mitchell Highway near Molong.

Bathurst has seen millions committed to improving the Great Western Highway, the Mid Western Highway and the Bathurst to Goulburn Road, amongst other infrastructure.
