Forbes Shire Council is committed to the improvement of infrastructure within the community, with a focus on the safety and wellbeing of all members of the community, evidenced through the latest investment in fixing Browne Street.
“The safety of our youngest most vulnerable community members is most important – we need to make sure that children are able to get to school safely,” the FSC statement read.
“There are safety concerns for Council and the community currently, and this project will help to address these”.
Council has applied for and been successful in obtaining a grant from the Federal Government, School Zone Infrastructure Sub-Program (administered by Transport for NSW), which is part of the $540million federal stimulus (NSW) Road Safety.
