The Moruya Airport will see some improvements thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Australian Government.
The Eurobodalla Shire Council owns and runs the airport. A council spokesperson said the funding will allow improvements to the taxiway.
"Council is very grateful for this funding, which will be used to improve the taxiway to the airport hangar precinct," the spokesperson said.
"The project will involve reconstructing, strengthening and widening the taxiway to a 105m wide standard, which is more appropriate for current use.
"Once complete, the works will result in a safer and more accessible airport for tourism and other airport-related business, and also ensure continuity of airport services for the community."
The council was working with airport stakeholders to schedule the works.
Moruya Airport was among 89 regional airports nationwide to benefit from round two of the Australian Government's Regional Airports Program.
Grants totalling nearly $30 million were distributed.
Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan announced Moruya Airport as a successful recipient on Wednesday, July 28.
"Every dollar spent on local infrastructure is a dollar well spent and I look forward to working with the community to deliver this vital funding as we continue recovering from the pandemic." Senator Molan said.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said the program would improve safety and services, connecting regional areas to the rest of Australia.
He said the government committed $100 million over four years from 2019-20 to 2022-23 to help owners of regional airports right across Australia deliver upgrades.
"These projects will improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers, the delivery of goods and services and better meet the operational requirements of aeromedical and other emergency services, including supporting bushfire preparedness," he said.
