Indi receives $2.28 million in infrastructure funding

Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has welcomed the Federal Government’s investment of $2,285,000 for three projects from the National Stronger Regions Fund.

The projects receiving funds are the Great River Road (Towong Shire) and Alpine Better Places (Alpine Shire).

“Congratulations to the communities of Corryong, Myrtleford and Porepunkah. They have put in the hard work in partnership with all levels of government to attract this funding,” Ms McGowan said.

“As a result Indi is clearly on the federal government’s radar, but a number of significant projects have been overlooked in this round of funding.

“It is very disappointing that the government has chosen not to invest in the Wangaratta Aquatic Plan, the Wangaratta Turf Club development upgrade, the construction of water storage at Mt Buller, the construction of the Baranduda Fields and the Strategic Tourism Assets Project for Mansfield.

“I will continue to lobby the government for funding for these projects.”
