More Road To Recovery Funding Announced

Almost $1.2 million will be distributed to councils in the Richmond electorate in the latest funding round under the Federal government’s Roads to Recovery programme.

Announcing the allocations today, the Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams said the Federal government is providing $3.2 billion to councils around Australia between 2014-15 and 2018-19 to repair and upgrade roads.

This includes the initial doubling of funding for 2015-16 and the additional $1.1 billion announced in June last year from the Fuel Excise Bill.

Senator Williams said in the August payments Tweed Shire Council will receive $658,333, Byron Shire Council $499,903 and Ballina Shire Council $40,438.
