State funding secured

Mt Gambier airport upgrade

The State Government has committed a further 1 million dollars toward the upgrade of the Mt Gambier airport.

The latest funding boosts the state governments contribution to the project to more than 4 million and they're calling on the Federal liberal Government to invest as well.

The upgrade is set to boost visitor numbers to the region which in turn will be a huge economic boost for the Limestone Coast.

It will involve extending the runway, apron upgrades, new taxiways and a realignment of airport road.
