Improving growth and prosperity of our state
Since the 2018–19 Budget, the Government has approved $763.0 million in new Restart NSW commitments, for the delivery of infrastructure projects right across the state. In total, 30 per cent of Restart NSW funding is targeted at regional areas over the life of the fund. New regional commitments include projects funded through the Regional Growth: Economic Activation Fund, water security projects and a variety of regional road upgrades to improve key freight corridors.
Connecting our people to the services they need
With a growing population, the need for better infrastructure across NSW has never been more urgent. Our Government is getting on with the job and our infrastructure pipeline is the envy of other states, reaching a new record $89.7 billion over the next four years. This vital program will improve communities in every corner of NSW, delivering on every front including new and upgraded schools and hospitals, better roads and public transport and improved justice and emergency services infrastructure.
Snowy Hydro Fund
Re-investing in our communities
In June 2018, the Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund was established to facilitate the reinvestment of the proceeds from the sale of the State’s share of Snowy Hydro into state-building infrastructure, dedicated to regional NSW communities. This investment will better connect our regions, bolstering the productivity and prosperity of regional communities now and into the future.
