City and country road upgrades across SA will get a $625m cash injection from Tuesday Federal Budget, in abid to secure 2600 local jobsfrom the COVID recession.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison will tomorrow reveal highly-anticipated details of a national infrastructure pipeline plan that will be a Budget showpiece alongside income tax cuts. Projects include a $200m upgrade for Hahndorf and its access routes.
Funding parcels of $136m have been set aside for both the duplication of Main South Road between Aldinga and Sellicks Beach, and a Princes Highway package including rest stops and overtaking lanes. The long-stalled sealing of the notorious Strzelecki Track, a key oil and gas freight route in SA’s north that is arguably the state’s worst road, will receive $100m.
In Adelaide, the Goodwood and Torrens rail junction projects will get an extra $13.2m.
South Eastern Freeway safety upgrades are in line for $28m in new money. A planned Victor Harbor Road upgrade will also get $12m in funding.
Several of the projects already have cash committed, adding up to a total $775m spend. Mr Morrison said the Coalition Federal Government had committed more than $9.8bn for infrastructure in SA since coming to power in 2013.
Past federal budgets have allocated $2.7bn to finishing South Road, to be matched by the state, but a design has not been finalised.
“The substantial injection of funding delivered in this year’s Budget shows the Government is serious about laying the foundations for an infrastructure-led recovery from the economic shock of the global pandemic,” Mr Morrison said.
