NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro says his government will consider funding to seal the Pooncarie to Menindee road after a ­petition calling for  government action received 1000 signatures. 

The petition was launched by Menindee Tourist Association member Graeme ­McCrabb last month, who said the con­dition of the road was affecting tourism. 

Pooncarie Hotel publican Josh Sheard said the worst section of the unsealed road was in Wentworth Shire, which was causing tourists to bypass Pooncarie altogether.
