Committee calls for united front in ensuring vital Kyabram Road ConnectionJuly 23, 2014 3:01am
After years of drought, floods, banking collapse and industry closures, local townspeople and business owners say a Kyabram Road Connection could help bring more tourism, more business and more people to the area.
First proposed in 2005, the Kyabram Road Connection would direct traffic travelling to Echuca off the proposed Shepparton Bypass along the Midland Hwy, up McEwen Rd and onto the Kyabram-Echuca Rd.
The project would include expanding sections of the Midland Hwy, as well as upgrading McEwen Rd and Kyabram-Echuca Rd to remove several dangerous intersections.
Kyabram Development Committee President Vince Curtis said the connection offers ‘‘massive benefits’’ to the district and that Kyabram must present a unified front to see the project realised.
‘‘It’s making Kyabram a more viable and a better place for people to want to live, same as the community bank proposal,’’ Mr Curtis said.
‘‘Rather than skirting the shire it takes people straight through the major communities, the major towns, the major assets of the shire.
‘‘It’s all about us and the community and as a town taking control of our own destiny.’’
