Six gravel roads in the local area will be sealed with bitumen after Armidale Regional Council secured $1.037 million from the federal government.
Another six gravel roads will be resheeted as part of the works.
Council's general manager James Roncon said the funding would ensure our local roads remain at the highest standard.
"These projects will boost the safety of our local roads and will improve the overall experience for drivers," Mr Roncon said.
"It is our top priority to deliver the community with the highest quality infrastructure, and through securing this grant we are taking the steps to do this."
Council has received $637,217 for the bitumen resealing program, which will see works conducted on Starr Road, Yeoman Street, Wollomombi Village Road, Rockvale Road, Aberfoyle Road and Boorolong Road.
"These works will begin with heavy patch and shoulder works, which we aim to complete within this financial year," Mr Roncon said.
"Once the heavy patches have settled for the required period, resealing will begin and we anticipate this will be complete by mid - 2023."
The gravel re -sheeting program will cost $400,000, and will see works done on Old Ebor Road, Kilcoy Road, Old Hillgrove Road, Metz Road, Sandon Road and Dumaresq Road.
Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce, said the road upgrades would deliver multiple benefits for the Armidale region.
"Not only will this funding build better roads for our local communities, the construction work will keep local people in jobs and drive new money back into the local economy," Mr Joyce said.
Works on these projects will be staggered over the next two years and are expected to be complete by the first half of 2023.
