The ACT will receive $155 million for transport infrastructure from the federal government as part of its COVID-19 economic recovery plan.

Spending for the ACT includes $88 million for the Molonglo River Bridge; and $50 million for a South West Corridor upgrade.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said: “This latest investment will provide another boost to the local economy and is part of our plan to support an estimated 400 direct and indirect jobs.”

ACT senator Zed Seselja said: “The government’s commitment to critical infrastructure continues across the territory, including an $88 million investment for the Molonglo River Bridge, supporting local jobs and businesses at the time it is needed most.”

He said that since being elected in 2013, the Liberal and Nationals government had committed more than $975 million for infrastructure in the ACT.
