APTLY Hellhole Creek Road is one North East spot set to benefit from the latest federal government funding for council-maintained routes.
The rural carriageway at Kergunyah is among 25 projects across Indigo Shire that will be bankrolled as part of the 2019-2020 Roads to Recovery package for the seat of Indi.
Overall in the electorate 110 roadworks are being funded.
In Wodonga, $500,000 will be outlaid for upgrading Plunketts Road which runs alongside the Hume Freeway between McKoy Street and Oates Gap Road.
There is also $41,081 earmarked as part of a $100,000 in improvements earmarked for the length of McFarland Road.
In Wangaratta, $610,598 will go towards revamping the intersection of Ovens and Faithfull streets.
The roundabout is bordered by the RSL housed in the Sydney Hotel and King George V Gardens.
Other beneficiaries in Wangaratta include intersections at Reid and Chisholm streets ($126,400) and Greta Road and Mason Street ($383,297).
The biggest Indi allocation of $624,729 will be used to better a 21-kilometre stretch of Benalla's Kilfeera Road from Samaria Road to beyond the Hume Freeway.
In addition to Hellhole Creek Road ($27,157), money will be spent on Indigo Shire roads at Beechworth, Chiltern, Cornishtown, Indigo Valley, Rutherglen and Yackandandah.
In Towong Shire, $69,960 will be spent on various parts of Upper Murray Road, $344,173 on Georges Creek Road and $82,019 on Tallangatta's main street.
The last mentioned project is part of a $115,500 makeover of Towong Street between Queen Elizabeth Drive west and east.
Government Senator Jane Hume in announcing the projects noted Towong Shire's large size.
"Securing this funding is critical for rural shires like Towong, that, for example have more bridges than any other shire in the state, and maintaining them is a costly task," Senator Hume said.
Funding for North East councils through to 2023-24 stands at $7.770 Wangaratta, $5.831 million Towong, $5.342 million Indigo, $4.875 million Benalla, $3.551 million Alpine and $2.705 million Wodonga.
