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.
