Thomas George, Member for Lismore, together with Don Page, Member for Ballina were pleased to receive advice today of the long awaited confirmation of funding from the Department of Transport for the bus interchange and pedestrian underpass at Trinity College Lismore.

The $600,000 project has a contribution of $400,000 from State, being Department of Transport and the Roads and Traffic Authority, with the remainder $200,000 supplied by Lismore City Council.

"The long crusade by the local community of teachers, parents and students have been duly recognised together with the efforts of the former member, Mr Bill Rixon" Thomas George said.

"It is indeed a tremendous accomplishment in gaining the provision of much needed safety pedestrian facilities for students and members of the community." Thomas George concluded.
