Goonoo Goonoo Road
“The Gateway to Tamworth” is in need of an upgrade. Goonoo Goonoo Road is the first thing people see when travelling to Tamworth and we need to make it the best looking road in the region.
In 2019, the NSW Government has committed $3 million to survey and design the stretch of road between Jack Smyth Drive and Calala Lane.
In December 2021, Federal Member for New England Barnaby Joyce committed $32 million towards construction of the road.
As part of the 2022/23 budget, the NSW Government committed $7.693 million towards moving the road through the final planning stages and on to preconstruction.
In June 2022, Transport for NSW released their submissions report which announced that construction on the road would begin in 2023 and is expected to take 12 months. For more details and to read the report, visit the Transport for NSW Project Website.
