Christmas comes early for councils

third phase of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program announced

Christmas comes early for councils

Councils can nominate a broad range of local road projects for funding under the program, such as traffic signs, street lighting, bridges, tunnels, rest areas or even road and sidewalk improvements.

Community infrastructure projects can include upgrading park and play facilities, installing Wi-Fi networks or safety-boosting closed circuit TV, or improving bike and walking paths.

From 1 January 2022, councils will be able to access funding through LRCI Program Phase 3, with projects under the Program to be delivered by 30 June 2023.

Increased funding available under LRCI Program Phase 3, as well as a longer delivery window, will allow for local governments to pursue larger, more complex projects that may be a higher priority and have a bigger impact on the community.
