Federal Government Funding for Roads in the City of Boroondara

On October 17, Josh joined with Cr Coral Ross, Mayor of the City of Boroondara, in welcoming the delivery of $2.39 million over five years in Federal Government funding for the City of Boroondara for local road construction and street repairs. The Abbott Government was pleased to announce in the Budget that funding for the Roads to Recovery programme was doubled for the 2015-16 financial year.

Through Roads to Recovery, the Australian Government is supporting local councils with the ongoing maintenance of Australia’s road infrastructure, facilitating greater access, improving safety, and driving economic growth.
