Commonwealth dollars for local roads

Share Canberra's trusted news:


SENATOR Zed Seselja has welcomed delivery of the Australian Government’s $2.1 billion Roads to Recovery programme, announcing that the ACT will receive $67.2m for local road construction and street repairs.

“These funds will make a real difference in building roads, repairing streets and creating better access across our community,” Zed said.

“As announced in the 2014 Federal Budget, our Government is doubling Roads to Recovery payments to local government next year (2015-16) to $700 million, which will be a tremendous windfall for much-needed local road works.”
