Council assists Lethbridge Airport to secure federal funding for fuel infrastructure
8 December 2015
In a huge win for the region, Golden Plains Shire Council, in conjunction with the Lethbridge Airport, has secured $225,166 from the Australian Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund for the Lethbridge Airport Fuel Infrastructure Project.
The Lethbridge Airport Fuel Infrastructure Project will provide a permanent fuel supply to support the growing Geelong region aviation tourism and commercial market in the Geelong Region as well as support the current and future recreational aviation fleet.
Lethbridge Airport is rapidly expanding, creating further demand for improved access to fuel.
This project will provide critical operational capability for both fire fighting assets and air ambulance helicopter services in western Victoria.
The project will deliver four self-bunded 18,000 litre fuel tanks for the provision of Avgas, Mogas and Jet A1 Fuel. Self-service fuel dispenser/bowser units with manual re-wind hose reels and earthing points as well as a self-service payment unit which will allow for 24 hour/365 day per year availability of all fuel types.
Mayor, Cr Des Phelan, said Golden Plains Shire Council is delighted with the result.
“This is a fantastic result for Lethbridge Airport, and for the wider region, and it is great to see the benefits recognised by the Australian Government.”
“This project will bring greater capabilities for fighting fires, increased aviation tourism opportunities, a boost to the local economy and create jobs for local people.”
