Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has outlined the wins for the Upper Lachlan region under the Coalition Government. What’s happening around the Upper Lachlan >>

“There is growth and investment all along the Hume corridor, with new businesses opening up across the Upper Lachlan,” Mr Taylor said.

“I caught up with new business owner Luke Winder at Taralga recently. Luke owns a 100-acre free range poultry farm, employing four locals, and moved to the area from Sydney two years ago.

“He delivers weekly to a number of Sydney restaurants, as well as supplying duck to the caterers at Parliament House in Canberra.”

“As we all know, connectivity is critical for businesses and households here. There are new mobile base stations coming for Tuena, Wombeyan Caves and Wayo, following a 4G base station for Gunning, the switch-on of mobile towers at Dalton, Tarlo, Laggan, Rye Park, Lost River and Golspie (17 Hume mobile base stations in total), as well as extended 4G coverage and the nbn rollout across the district.
