$26m road boost helps drive Farrer

Throughout 2017/18, the Australian Government is assisting Councils and Shires across Farrer to help build and maintain our local roads, with grants totalling over $26 million.

Over 140 local road projects are being fully or jointly funded as part this year’s Roads to Recovery (R2R) Programme across the country.

The Coalition Government has a firm commitment to R2R, with total funding increasing to $400 million a year from 2019-2020 (up from $350m) ensuring the continuation of the program.

‘Roads to Recovery’ delivers a strong and vital relationship between the Australian Government and local councils – working together to improve road conditions and safety.

A full list of Farrer’s R2R 2017/18 road projects is listed here.
