• Truck stop will make region’s roads safer

    A WELCOME UPGRADE: Damien Drum (MHR, Murray), Mario Carricato from Gattuso Transport, and Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa) at the Balmattum rest stop.

    DAMIAN Drum (MHR, Murray) was in Euroa last week to announce funding for local groups and new infrastructure projects.
