BULLI Showground will receive a new 2.1 metre high palisade security fence after funding from the NSW Government’s COVID-19 stimulus program.
State MP for Heathcote Lee Evans has announced the $328,500 upgrade work at Slacky Flat. Mr Evans said it’s fantastic to report that the stimulus program will back more showground improvements at Bulli while supporting jobs and the local economy.
The funding follows $197,430 provided last financial year to the multi-use facility to install a new LED entry sign, install additional power distribution boxes across the showground and improve fire safety through the installation of a new dual fire hydrant.
Minister for Water, Housing and Property Melinda Pavey said the COVID-19 stimulus program has now allocated a total of $35.77 million to showground improvement projects across the state.
“We provided $23.27 million last financial year to support upgrades at 152 showgrounds and now a further $12.5 million has been allocated for this financial year to support more work at 76 showgrounds,” Minister Pavey said.
“So far the COVID-19 stimulus program has supported over 1,330 jobs on showground projects across the state providing work for tradespeople, suppliers and fabricators, and this further $12.5 million will support more improvements and jobs.”
