Visitors to the Heathcote-Graytown National Park will enjoy better roads with the Victorian Government’s flood recovery project in the area now completed.
State member for Northern Victoria Donna Petrovich last week announced the second of six flood recovery projects in the central Goldfields area had repaired more than 100km of flood-damaged roads including those at Heathcote-Graytown National Park, Whroo Historic Area and Whroo Nature Conservation Reserve.
Ms Petrovich said the flood recovery effort was a credit to Parks Victoria flood recovery with visitors now able to comfortably explore the area without scour damaged track road testing their vehicles suspension.
‘‘I’m incredibly happy to announce that the work to repair storm damaged roads in Heathcote-Graytown National Park and Whroo Historic Area and Whroo Nature Conservation Reserve is now complete,’’ Mrs Petrovich said.
‘‘The flood recovery project repaired 42 roads: 19 within the Heathcote-Graytown National Park, nine in the Whroo Historic Area and two in the Whroo Nature Conservation Reserve.’’
After severe weather left them severely damaged in 2011, the flood recovery project graded out deep scours, reinstated drainage and reformed roads.
The $187,000 project is part of the Victorian Government’s $19.7
