Victorian Government ensures first stage of six goes ahead with $500 000 grant.CHALPAT SONTI July 9, 2014 3:50am
A new roundabout at the High St-Goulburn St intersection, road upgrades, landscaping and new outdoor dining areas to encourage buses and recreation vehicles to stop are among a $500
The money, from the Regional Growth Fund, is part of the $837
The redevelopment - in which the remainder of the money will come from Strathbogie Shire ratepayers - is intended to help the town move from a drive-through stopover to a destination in its own right, something acknowledged by Mr Ryan.
‘‘It seems that the towns that are bypassed get into the circumstances of ‘be careful what you wish for,’’ he said.
‘‘(We need) to make sure these communities are able to continue to be viable. This is but stage one (of six) but it will be significant in its form. These things are vitally important to the future of Nagambie.’’
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Deb Swan said ‘‘for 40-plus years people have been asking when’s (Nagambie going to take off)’’.
Without a vibrant town centre, Nagambie could not ensure its future. ‘‘(We need to) get the town centre of Nagambie buzzing with food, wine and entertainment.’’
Nationals candidate for Euroa Steph Ryan said it was another example of what The Nationals could achieve by working as part of a strong Coalition team.
The work should be done by the middle of next year.
