Griffith's pothole-ridden roads and bumpy dirt tracks will be getting a long-awaited upgrade with the help of a $5 million NSW Government cash splash.
The money comes as part of the Roads to Recovery program, which will be a five year project starting this financial year and ending in 2024.
Griffith City Council have divvied up the money over the coming years, with much of it going towards bolstering council's pre-existing road projects.
Nearly $2 million will be going towards Bromley Road, Thorne Rd West, and the Kidman intersection as part of the Griffith Southern Industrial Link project.
An additional $1 million will go towards sealing Boorga Road, a treacherous dirt track that residents and farmers had been complaining about for decades.
Jones Road and Lakes Road next to Lake Wyangan will be getting $800,000 apiece for widening and upgrading.
A 2.5 kilometre stretch of Kurrajong Avenue is proposed to get over $920,000, also for widening and upgrading.
The $5 million bonus cash from the Roads to Recovery fund will ease the pressure on council's coffers, and mayor John Dal Broi described it as "very generous".
Councillor Dino Zappacosta said council should focus their priority on Bromley Road, Boorga Road, and Jones Road, which needed urgent attention.
"Those three roads must be on the list and be done as soon as could be done," Dr Zappacosta said.
