LINC UPGRADES PROGRESS
Upgrades to Lithgow’s Information and Neighbourhood Centre (LINC) are well underway. LINC received $453,494 from round seven of the NSW Governments Resources for Regions program to revitalise the facility.
The project involves the restoration and revitalisation of the LINC building on Railway Parade, Lithgow. Works include construction of a new shed, replacement of roofing and windows, facelift to internal walls, doors and flooring plus additional heating and supply of new IT equipment.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole visited LINC to see how works were progressing.
“Despite recent weather, renovations are progressing well with the roof replacement as the next step towards the renovation’s completion,” said Mr Toole.
“Works are expected to be completed by the end of the year.”
Resources for Regions has been highly successful program delivering 149 projects worth $345 million to mining communities since 2012.
“Regional NSW mining communities play a very important part in the state’s economy, and Lithgow will continue to play a role in state’s economic success for years to come, which is why we’re investing in the future of this region,” Mr Toole said.
“The NSW Government is committed to supporting regional mining towns that supply our state with the precious resources, and these projects will support the ongoing prosperity of the local community.”
Resources for Regions Round Seven is part of the $1.7 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure for regional communities.
