Member for Cootamundra, Katrina Hodgkinson, has welcomed news that work has officially started to build temporary road widenings, to tie in with the new alignment of the Newell Highway west of Grong Grong.

The 17 million dollar project will move the highway to the west of town, aimed at improving freight efficiency and road safety, and supporting the long-term future of the local area.

A new 2.7 kilometre 2-lane section of highway will be built, set to have a 110 kilometre per hour speed limit, including turning lanes to provide access to Grong Grong.
