This includes major upgrades to roads in Kilkivan and near Woolooga, as well as flashing lights at Kilkivan State School.

“In 2021 I will be working to achieve support for the Nanango electorate across the areas which continue to need serious attention,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“We all know our road network does not receive the level of funding required, so I will be pushing for this to be addressed.

“I will also continue my advocacy for access to better health services across the electorate, and work to highlight the need for water security for our irrigators.”

The key projects across the Nanango electorate for 2021 are as follows:
