Second chance for grants under NSW Fixing Local Roads Program

Round 2 of the accelerated Fixing Local Roads program, funded by the Federal and NSW governments, opened on Monday.

Projects that can start this financial year and be delivered within two years will be given funding priority, NSW Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said.

In June, the Federal Government committed $191 million to build on the NSW Government’s $500 million Fixing Local Roads program.

The first round of funding saw $243.6 million in grants for 253 shovel-ready projects in 84 Local Government Areas – and round 2 will see another $136.4 million injected into regional NSW.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the commitment will ensure more local road projects are delivered to boost local employment.

Round 2 applications can be made up until Friday, 4 December 2020.
