Members of parliament representing the Goulburn region are lobbying for funding under Round 4 of the Federal government's Mobile Black Spot programme.

 

Applications under the latest round have been extended a further month until January 10th.

 

Federal member, Angus Taylor says with strong support from the Upper Lachlan, he is pushing for service improvements for a number of communities.

 

So far, there are four locations in the area for black spot attention- Grabben Gullen, Bigga, Curraweela and Bannister.

 

State member, Pru Goward says the extension of time for applications, is an opportunity for more communities to come forward and state their needs.
