Dixons Long Point Crossing: Mr Andrew Gee MP for Calare welcomed the Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack MP into the electorate last week and took him to Dixons Long Point. For 160 years the community has wanted a better crossing at Dixons Long Point which will better connect Orange and Mudgee. It will also grow the region’s tourism, boost productivity and get people home sooner. With $16 million
for the project locked in, the Mid-Western Regional Council will lead the project in conjunction with Cabonne Council and the RMS, the aim is to have shovels in the ground before the end of the year.
