Western Downs Regional Council on Road to Recovery with $635,660 in federal funding

September 14, 2020

Local road maintenance in the Western Downs will receive a boost thanks to a $635,660 funding injection though the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery Program, Maranoa MP David Littleproud said today.


“This funding will allow the Western Downs Regional Council to progress a number of high-priority projects, using local knowledge to deliver the best local roads,” Mr Littleproud said.


“Works include upgrades to key thoroughfares and local roads in the region, which will help to get locals home sooner and safer.


“Apart from increased safety, drivers are going to be travelling on smoother, more reliable roads and that’s all part of building up efficiency across the region.


“The Roads to Recovery Program is a local and federal partnership that improves road networks and delivers real and tangible benefits to local communities.


“We are investing in infrastructure nationwide in order to lay the foundations for economic recovery on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.”


The Australian Government will deliver over $77.2 million to 234 local government authorities nationwide for safer and better-maintained roads.


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.
