WITH the development of one of the country’s largest nation building projects on its doorstep, Narrabri Shire Council is looking to plan for the future.

The planning comes as plans for the Inland Rail Project come to light and are designed to maximise the benefits for the shire.

The council has recruited the services of Arcadis Australia Pacific to implement detailed documentation on the benefits and viability of a substantial commercial and industrial estate to ensure it maximises the benefits.

Narrabri shire mayor Cathy Redding said the district is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the upcoming development, and all the opportunities entailed.

NINE community projects from across the Narrabri shire are set to benefit from a welcome funding boost thanks to the state government.

More than $1.6 million will be injected into the region as a part of the state government’s stronger country communities program and will be distributed between the nine projects.

Narrabri Shire Council general manager Stewart Todd said it was very exciting to see local community groups receive a funding boost.

Boggabri Business and Community Progress Association calls for Grain Valley Road to be completed

Boggbari is missing out on tourism because Grain Valley Road isn't completely sealed, the town's progress association says.

The road is a major thoroughfare, which connects Mullaley and Boggabri, with 17.4km still unsealed after more than a decade of lobbying. The project is estimated at $8.2 million and is waiting on state funding.

The gravel section has been labelled “dangerous and vehicle-destroying”, with many avoiding the route altogether and instead going through Gunnedah.

“Boggabri is missing out on tourism because the tar’s just not there,” Boggabri Business and Community Progress Association member Donna Turner said.

“A lot of people that come down from Coonabarabran to Boggabri and have caravans won’t use the road because it’s not tarred. They go through Gunnedah instead and bypass Boggabri.”
