States, local councils, and regional areas will benefit from major infrastructure spending in this year's Federal Budget with a significant boost to roads, bridges, rail, and community works.
The Government will give councils an extra $1 billion to immediately upgrade bike paths, streetlights, footpaths, walking tracks, community halls, and barbecue facilities as part of the Coalition's Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program announced in May.
There is also a big focus on road safety, including $2 billion nationwide for small-scale spends such as installing wire rope safety barriers.
But Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg warned the new money came with conditions.
"Funding for these shovel-ready projects will be provided on a use it or lose it basis," he said.
"If a state drags its feet, another state will get the money. We need works to start, not stall."
