The NSW Government has expedited the delivery process for the NSW Border Wild Dog Fence, with ‘boots on the ground’ expected before the end of the year.
The project will provide a 32-kilometre extension to the NSW Border Wild Dog Fence, closing the existing gap with the South Australian dog fence.
Following the announcement of this project in 2019, the former Coalition Government repeatedly failed to deliver this vital infrastructure.
The NSW Government has allocated budget for the delivery of this fence, and additional resources are being made available to expedite the administrative process, ensuring that construction will commence this year.
The dog fence is an important tool in the fight against wild dogs, other pest animals and biosecurity threats facing producers and local communities in Western NSW.
