Infrastructure investment laying the foundations for economic recovery in South Burnett

Maranoa MP David Littleproud has secured over $14.1 million towards infrastructure investments in the South Burnett in the 2020-21 Budget, as part the Coalition Federal Government’s Economic Recovery Plan for Australia.


“I’m proud to see our regional communities getting their fair share in this budget, with more than $14.1 million in funding to flow to major infrastructure projects, to build our economy and secure Maranoa’s future.” Mr Littleproud said.


The Government’s record $110 billion transport infrastructure program will support local jobs and businesses at the time it is needed most.


“The South Burnett Regional Council will receive $10.6 million this financial year to build shovel-ready local priorities, through extensions to the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, Roads to Recovery Program and the Financial Assistance Grants,” Mr Littleproud said.


“Improving road safety is a core priority for the Government and that’s why we’re investing an additional $1 billion towards the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, which all Maranoa Councils will benefit from.


“This additional funding will drive community-led recovery by empowering local governments to deliver priority roads and community infrastructure to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.


“The South Burnett will also benefit from $15.2 million towards upgrades of the D’Aguilar Highway between Caboolture and Yarraman; $4.6 million toward the nearing completed Emu Creek bridge on the New England Highway; and $3.5 million for the North and South Burnett Water Infrastructure Feasibility Study.”
