Decades of hard lobbying have finally come to an end for residents and farmers, with Boorga and Dickie Roads - the Griffith City Council section - now funded for sealing.
With the total costs hitting the $7.3 million mark, the funds have been supplied from a local producer and council, with money from the state government making up the rest in a deal sealed on Monday.
Rombola Family Farms matched council's $830,000, with the state government making up the rest. For Fernando Rombola, handing out money to help seal the road feels like winning the battle of the ages.
"I am very happy they have finally taken notice," Mr Rombola said.
"We have been lobbying really hard especially for the last five years, but obviously the previous owners, my parents, grandparents, uncles, all these guys have been lobbying for years and years and years."
This was a huge win, and not only for the road users according to council's director of infrastructure and operations Phil King.
"We would spend a great deal of money grading the road, so once this is sealed the rate payers will end up saving a substantial amount," Mr King said.
Council's general manager Brett Stonestreet said this deal was one with a much better outcome for the ratepayers.
"The majority of programs [state, federal] are a 50/50 split between the government body and council. This one has far more state government money as a proportion coming through."
Member for Murray Austin Evans said this funding was thanks to hard lobbying efforts by council and residents over the years, and was part of a $500 million commitment to fix local roads.
"It's been a clear flow on effect - the residents have lobbied hard, council have then also pushed hard, and now we are here today with the money," Mr Evans said. Mayor John Dal Broi was "incredibly proud".
"Our staff have continually graded it and tried to keep in the best condition that they can, but because of the enormous amount of traffic on it, within a fortnight it would be back to the original bad condition," Cr Dal Broi said.
"We've heard the residents and now we finally have the chance to do something."
