Councils on Road to Recovery in Maranoa

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

Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said the Roads to Recovery funding will allow councils across the area to progress a number of high-priority projects, using local knowledge to deliver the best local roads.

“This forms part of our Government’s unwavering commitment to get Australians home sooner and safer, no matter where they live,” Mr Littleproud said.

Councils in Maranoa will receive the following quarterly payment under the program:

  • Balonne Shire Council $240,585
  • Barcoo Shire Council $254,196
  • Bulloo Shire Council $378,921
  • Goondiwindi Regional Council $925,053
  • Maranoa Regional Council $1,240,000
  • Murweh Shire Council $829,227
  • Quilpie Shire Council $828,374
  • Southern Downs Regional Council $179,017
  • Toowoomba Regional Council $900,000
  • Western Downs Regional Council $755,660

“From 2013–14 to 2023–24, the Government will provide $6.2 billion under the Roads to Recovery Program, with an ongoing commitment of $500 million each year following.

“We are investing in infrastructure nationwide to drive Australia’s world-leading economic recovery from COVID-19.

“Assisting local councils to maintain and improve roads under their jurisdiction is a big part of that, which is why we have made a $2.5 billion commitment through the Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program and earlier this year brought forward $1.3 billion of the 2021–22 Financial Assistance Grant payment.”

Mr Littleproud said the Australian Government supports local governments to provide vital infrastructure and services through a range of programs.

“This support includes the Financial Assistance Grant and Bridges Renewal, Black Spot, Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity, Roads to Recovery and Local Roads and Community Infrastructure programs.”
