HEAVY MACHINERY ROLLS INTO CULLEN BULLEN RACEWAY
Heavy machinery has rolled into Cullen Bullen Raceway as speedway fans eagerly anticipate the venue’s transformation into one of the major venues for the sport in NSW.
Earlier this year Member for Bathurst Paul Toole announced funding of more than $596,000 from the NSW Government for safety and track upgrades.
This includes new concrete walls and fencing as well as a realignment and extension of the track to make the straights longer.
Mr Toole said a revamped Cullen Bullen Raceway will make the venue one of the premier locations in the state for this form of motorsport.
“It means all classes of cars can use the facility and this in turn will attract more drivers and teams as well as race fans to Cullen Bullen,” he said.
“If Cullen Bullen wasn’t a big player on the speedway map before, it certainly will be once these upgrades are completed.”
Mr Toole said the funding is part of more than $1.3 million in funding for a range of local improvement projects for Crown land reserves and community facilities in the region.
He said the funding is being provided by the NSW Government under its Crown Reserves Improvement Fund.
