Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has welcomed an announcement of $7.08 million for the Hilltops local government area under the Federal Coalition’s Roads to Recovery program, from 2019-20 through until 2023-24.

Mr Taylor said the Roads to Recovery program provided councils with the ability to upgrade local roads, to improve safety and boost local economic growth. One of the projects that will receive $250,000 in Federal funding under the program is the Tarrants Gap causeway.

“This funding will see the existing causeway over Merryama Creek replaced with box culverts and a road realignment to make it a lot safer,” Mr Taylor said. Other local projects (although not within the electorate of Hume) to benefit from Roads to Recovery funding include:

  • Quamby Road gravel re-sheeting near Henry Lawson Way - $32,000 Federal contribution
  • McMahons Reef Road improvements near Burley Griffin Way – $148,000 Federal contribution
  • Galong Road stabilisation – $100,000 Federal contribution

“More than $3 billion has been invested in Hume infrastructure in the past five years – roads, bridges, the nbn rollout, major capital works, mobile phone towers, smaller community projects – since the Coalition has been in government,” Mr Taylor said.

“We are investing heavily in infrastructure across Hume to create jobs, to encourage small businesses to expand and new businesses to start up, to build a strong economy.”
