The Morrison-Joyce Government is continuing to drive the growth of Eden-Monaro providing more funding through the 2022-23 Budget for infrastructure projects that will create jobs, benefit locals, and drive economic growth.

Key local projects funded through the Budget include $100 million for the Southern Connector Road in Jindabyne, a new road south of Jindabyne which bypasses the town centre, linking with Kosciuszko Road at both ends and intersecting with Barry Way at its centre.

Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan said these projects will make roads safer, reduce travel times and boost the economy.

“The Federal Government’s record infrastructure investment pipeline continues to deliver better outcomes for the people of Eden-Monaro,” Senator Molan said.

“Investing in infrastructure upgrades ensures we are planning for a better future, giving locals the roads and services they need and deserve.

“These funding commitments will create jobs, boost business investment, and drive our economic recovery.

“The Southern Connector Road in Jindabyne will not only reduce traffic flow through the Jindabyne town centre, therefore reduce travel times, support growth in tourism, and improve freight productivity and road safety for all users, it will also support 340 direct and indirect jobs.

“This investment through the 2022-23 Budget builds on the substantial investment our Government has already made in Eden-Monaro.

“The Morrison-Joyce Government will continue to invest in the projects that keep commuters and freight moving, create jobs, and make our nation and economy stronger.”

The Australian Government will continue to work with the NSW Government to deliver this infrastructure, supporting jobs and businesses right across NSW.
