The West Tamar Council is pleased to receive funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
The program, modelled on the Roads to Recovery Program, has previously funded safety improvements on Farmer Street in Riverside, Crowther Street in Beaconsfield, and Rookery Road in Flowery Gully during the 2018/19 financial year, as well as Gray Street in Riverside and Bridgenorth Road in Bridgenorth during the current financial year.
Based on the Roads to Recovery formula which determines the amount of funding each Council receives dependent on the length of road, versus the municipal population, the West Tamar Council has been allocated $519,602 towards future road and community infrastructure projects, to be spent by June 2021.
“This funding will allow us to invest further in the safety of our community, whilst also continuing to boost the economy using local contractors,” Mayor Christina Holmdahl said.
“Alongside the stimulus measures announced in April 2020 where Council will support contractors by fast-tracking a million dollars of small capital projects, we have also committed an additional million dollars of stimulus works to the 2020-21 capital budget, ensuring an array of projects that are ready to be implemented as soon as practical in our 2021-22 capital works program.”
