RGA calls for targeted black spot funding

26 May 2016 8:34 AM -
The Ricegrowers' Association of Australia (RGA) has welcomed the Commonwealth Government's announcement for an additional $60m funding to address mobile black spots in rural Australia.

RGA President Jeremy Morton said that this funding is essential to address severe mobile coverage deficiencies across the Riverina.

"RGA has recently surveyed grower representatives to better understand exactly where the mobile black spots in our region are. The map we've produced isn't a pretty sight - it shows a level of service that isn't up to scratch in 2016."
