LOCAL road maintenance in Glenorchy will receive a $2.8 million funding boost under the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery Program.

Liberal Senator Eric Abetz said $2,894,515 would be allocated between 2019/20 to 2023/24 to allow the Council to progress a number of high-priority projects, using local knowledge to deliver the best local roads.

“The Federal Government is committed to getting Australians home sooner and safer, no matter where they live,” he said.

“We are investing in infrastructure right across the country to lay the foundations for economic recovery on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Helping local councils maintain and improve roads under their jurisdiction is a big part of that.

“I’m pleased that the government has been able to increase the allocation for the Roads to Recovery Program nationwide and the residents of Glenorchy will be the beneficiaries of almost $3 million over the next four years.”

The Australian Government will provide more than $190 million to 332 local government authorities nationwide for safer and better maintained roads.

The Government has committed an additional $100 million per year to the Roads to Recovery Program from 2019–20, as part of the Local and State Government Road Safety Package announced in the 2019–20 Budget.
