The year has started at a cracking pace which is great, because it means things are happening in our electorate!
Already this year, new hospitals have been opened at Peak Hill, Forbes and Parkes. It’s part of the biggest country hospital building program since World War Two. Construction of the new Molong MPS is also now underway.
Orange has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the state, and this year I’d like to see funding delivered for three new domestic violence safe houses.
On the roads front, things look extremely busy, with work to commence on the Guanna Hill highway re-alignment (between Orange and Molong), and also the straightening of the Newell at Trewilga between Peak Hill and Parkes. We’ve also got planning underway for the Parkes bypass.
Money will continue to be allocated for new overtaking lanes on Cargo Road, and I’d like to see construction commence soon.
This year I’d also like to see some planning funding for the crossing and approaches at Dixons Long Point to finally get the new Orange-Mudgee road link underway.
And those are just a few of the projects I’ve got on the agenda! 2016 is off and running and I’m very excited about what we can achieve.
If there are any issues you’d like to raise with me, or if I can help in anyway, please let me know. My door is always open.
