Local road maintenance in Durack electorate will receive a boost thanks to funding under the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery Program.

Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said the Australian Government would deliver over $27 million to 117 local government authorities nationwide for safer and better-maintained roads.

“The Roads to Recovery funding in Durack will allow councils across the area to progress a number of high-priority projects, using local knowledge to deliver the best local roads,” Ms Price said.

I’m pleased to confirm that 17 councils in Durack with share in more than $ 2.5 million dollars in the latest allocation of these crucial funds.

“We understand that in terms of road infrastructure, local governments can’t do it all by themselves. The Roads to Recovery Program is a true local and federal partnership that improves road networks in both the cities and the bush, bringing real and tangible benefits to local communities,” Melissa Price said.

The Morrison 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.

The Australian Government supports local governments to provide vital infrastructure and services through Financial Assistance Grants, and the Bridges Renewal, Black Spot, Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity and Roads to Recovery programs.
