Marshall Government welcomes massive $2.6 billion infrastructure injection

17 April 2019

The Marshall Government has welcomed the Morrison Government’s $2.6 billion investment in South Australian road infrastructure.

The massive infrastructure spend in South Australia supports the record infrastructure pipeline announced in the Marshall Government’s first State Budget.

Some of the key projects announced in the Federal Budget include;

“The Marshall Government has been able to successfully work with the Federal Government to deliver a massive $2.6 billion in new infrastructure funding for South Australia in this Federal Budget,” said Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll.

“This massive injection of Federal Government funding will underpin a strong construction industry in South Australia and help to secure thousands of construction jobs over the coming years.

“We’ve seen a $2.7 billion commitment towards the completion of the final remaining stage of the North-South Corridor, with enough funding in the forward estimates to begin land acquisition and other early works.

“The Federal Government is also partnering with the State Government to bust traffic congestion around metropolitan Adelaide, with a host of intersection upgrades and important level crossings.

“There’s also more than half a billion dollars in Federal Government funding in this Budget to upgrade regional roads.

“This significant investment in regional roads complements the Marshall Government’s $315 million regional roads investment announced in last year’s State Budget.

“The Marshall Government has been able to develop a mature working relationship with the Federal Government which is paying huge dividends.

“This is something the previous State Labor administration refused and failed to do to the detriment of all South Australians.”
