Member for New England and Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce has backed the expansion of recreation facilities at Tamworth’s Viaduct Park with $280,000 in funding from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
The program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects, supporting jobs and the resilience of local communities to bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deputy Prime Minister and Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce, said a new 95 metre pump track, half-court basketball court with line markings and climbing wall will add another dimension to the fantastic skate park and café at Viaduct Park.
“Viaduct Park is quickly transforming Tamworth, providing a fantastic space for kids, teens and families to use the new recreation facilities,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
“The Coalition is committed to making Tamworth and the rest of the New England a safe space for families, and Viaduct Park has become an integral part of that plan.”
