Tinamba now safer after road overhaul

Tinamba is now safer and more accessible thanks to the completion of a road improvement project under the Flexible Local Transport Solutions program.

The $150,000 upgrade has delivered a number of benefits for the local community, improving access to V/Line coach services to Traralgon and Sale, providing stronger links to employment and education opportunities for locals, and connections to train services on the Gippsland line.

Works have also improved pedestrian and vehicle access to local businesses, improved kerbs, line-marking, drainage, and bus stops, including a new stop on the western side of the road and upgrades to the existing stop on the eastern side.

The Victorian Government has invested $40,000 from the Flexible Local Transport Solutions program and a further $90,000 from its Building Works program, delivering improvements on Traralgon-Maffra Road through the town.

Wellington Shire Council also contributed a further $20,000 to the upgrades.

The Flexible Local Transport Solutions program provides funding for local transport initiatives, services, and infrastructure in regional Victoria.

The program works with local transport forums, regional partnerships, local councils, and community organisations to identify and deliver these opportunities.
