MORE GOOD NEWS FOR REGION’S ROADS

Re-construction works on George Booth Drive are now complete.

The $450,000 project was funded from the Federal Government’s Nation Building Stimulus Package.

The up-grade to the 200 metre section of George Booth Drive south of Richmond Vale Road at Buchanan will improve the safety of the road. The road has been widened and the shoulders have been sealed.

The improvements are in response to the bad crash history at this location.

In the five year period between January 2003 and December 2008 there were four crashes on this length of road including two injury crashes.

This is part of the NSW and Federal governments’ commitment to improving road safety in the Hunter Valley.
