Razorback Lookout is a very popular spot to look out over our spectacular coastal town of Evans Head. It is used by many tourists and locals.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said work has now begun on the $399,963 redevelopment of the lookout.
“This project is great for tourists who come to visit and stay in our community, and our locals who enjoy sitting and taking in the view,” Mr Hogan said.
“Upgrades will include new picnic shelters, BBQ facilities, new toilets, car parks and signage.”
Richmond Valley Council Mayor Robert Mustow said the community had benefited greatly from increased support from the Federal Government.
“We can be very proud of what has been achieved so far and I look forward to progressing with all the projects across the Richmond Valley,” Cr Mustow said.
“Our communities have faced the combined effects of drought, bushfires, floods and COVID-19, which is why we are backing projects which create employment and business opportunities.”
Funding has been provided through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, designed to support councils deliver priority infrastructure projects to support jobs and bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
