Funding For Upgrades At Warwick Airport
Maranoa MP David Littleproud has announced that Federal Government funding of $276,360 has been allocated to two aerodromes in the Southern Downs Region.
Warwick and Stanthorpe aerodromes are among 89 regional airports nationwide which will benefi t from grants totalling nearly $30 million under Round 2 of the Australian Government’s Regional Airports Program.
This project will complete a range of safety upgrades including staff training, fencing, lighting, removal of vegetation and works to the glider runway.
“Keeping our regional airstrips in top-notch condition will help locals to remain well-connected, improve the delivery of goods and services and ensure emergency services continue to have quick and easy access to our towns.
“Every dollar spent on local infrastructure is a dollar well spent and I look forward to working with the community to deliver this vital funding as we continue recovering from the pandemic.” Mr Littleproud said.
