Greater Shepparton City Council noted the awarding of more than $1 million in contracts at the June meeting, with three local companies successful.

The contracts included more than $740,000 for an intersection upgrade at Davies Rd and Lancaster-Mooroopna Rd, which was awarded to Shepparton company Jarvis Delahey Contractors.

The project involves an overall upgrade to the intersection and sealing of 800 metres of Davies Rd.

More than $260,000 was awarded to Tatura company NL Drainage and Concrete Construction for a water main relocation along Welsford St. These works will pave the way for Stage 4 of the Welsford St upgrade.

Another Tatura company, Tactile Australia Pty Ltd, won a contract for more than $80,000 for the construction of kerb, channel and drainage in Maher St, Tatura.

Mayor Shane Sali said council was pleased to award the contracts to local companies and see the money reinvested into the community.

“We are always pleased to be able to award contracts and see works and upgrades get under way across the region; however, we are even more pleased when these contracts are awarded to one of the many great local companies in Greater Shepparton,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing each of these contracts completed and the money reinvested back into our region and our local economy. Congratulations to each of the successful businesses.”
