The Trangie truck wash area is set to receive an upgrade under the NSW government program Restart Fixing Country Roads.
The Narromine Shire Council has received $320,000 to upgrade pumps and lighting in the area.
The truck wash area is one of 21 new projects to receive investment from the program to improve freight movements across rural and regional NSW.
“The Fixing Country Roads program is one of the largest undertakings ever seen across regional NSW and these new projects will mean we have 302 individual upgrades either completed or being delivered,” Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said.
“The work at the Trangie Truck Wash area will reduce the amount of water required by increasing the pressure to wash down heavy vehicles on a drained site that is sealed and has lighting."
The scheme is helping regional communities by upgrading worn out bridges, sealing often unpassable roads, building and upgrading truck washes and offering alternatives for people needing to travel between freight facilities, regional communities and main state roads.
Central to Fixing Country Roads are projects which show the potential to improve freight delivery, journey times and safety outcomes.
“These are important benefits for all the community, from producers to tourists, or the local school bus who all share these roads,” Mr Grant said.
NSW Restart Fixing Country Roads is a $543 million program targeted to improve regional interconnectivity and productivity.
