Corangamite Shire Council Welcomes Trail Funding
The Corangamite Shire Council has welcomed a $4.5 million boost which will help build the Twelve Apostles Trail Stage One from Timboon to Port Campbell, after nearly 15 years of planning.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney earlier this week announced the first funding as part of the Victorian Government‘s $2.7 billion Building Works package.
Mayor Neil Trotter said the announcement was terrific news.
“On behalf of the Shire I would like to thank the State Government for this much-needed stimulus for our local economy,” Cr Trotter said.
“Particular thanks go to Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes who was instrumental in getting the funding after she visited the Shire and heard our case for funding the trail".
