This Budget delivers on our election commitments, maintains our triple-A credit rating and delivers record spending in both services and infrastructure.
After four years of fiscal repair and strong government, we are in complete control of the Budget and have the strongest economy in Australia.
In 2015-16, we are forecasting a surplus and surpluses in each year of the forward estimates.
The State is absolutely buzzing.
Cranes are visible right across the skyline.
This is not just happening in our cities, but across our regions as well.
Our State is leading the nation.
Over the last year, economic activity in NSW has grown faster than in any other state.
We are creating jobs and providing better services.
We are also using this strong position of the State’s Budget to bring forward key transport and roads election commitments.
With the billions from the electricity transactions assured, we will accelerate almost $600 million of funding for infrastructure so we can get started and deliver these major projects as soon as possible.
We are now very well placed to deliver Rebuilding NSW, a $20 billion boost to infrastructure that will change this state for generations to come.
This Budget delivers for everyone in NSW. We are Building our Future.
