Gilmore continues to benefit from the Morrison Government’s record infrastructure investment, with funding for major new projects to be announced in this week’s Federal Budget.

Key projects to be funded include the Princes Highway Corridor (NSW):

  • $100 million for the Jervis Bay Road Intersection
  • $400 million Jervis Bay Road to Sussex Inlet Road – Stage 1

Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan these projects will make local roads safer, reduce travel times and support thousands of jobs across the state.

“The Federal Government’s record funding commitment is creating jobs, boosting business investment, while securing Australia’s COVID recovery.”

“In this year’s Budget, the Government is announcing additional funding for the Eurobodalla Roads Upgrade Package and the Far North Collector Road Network, Nowra,” Senator Molan said.

“This investment has improved safety and enhanced transport efficiency in Gilmore and Budget builds on this record of delivery.

“The Federal Budget continues the Government’s agenda to improve high-priority roads, essential to the movement of people and freight to support the region’s economic development.

“These types of large-scale infrastructure projects will be particularly crucial for helping us bounce back after COVID-19 by ensuring we have the safe transport connections needed for all of Australia to keep moving,” Senator Molan said.

The Australian Government looks forward to working constructively with the New South Wales Government to deliver this infrastructure, supporting jobs and businesses right across New South Wales.
