A new car park, major upgrades to a park and additions to a busy intersection are among the projects in the Longman electorate to be funded by the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.
In total, eight priority projects, costing more than $3.3 million, will be delivered by Moreton Bay Regional Council under the LRCI scheme.
“We have moved quickly to approve funding for eight new projects across Longman, paving the way for shovels to hit the dirt to make them a reality,” Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said.
“This will provide a vital boost for our local communities, backing local jobs and economic growth while delivering lasting upgrades that will benefit residents for years to come.”
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said $1 billion in funding is flowing under phase three of the LRCI program to councils to improve road networks and deliver priority community infrastructure projects.
“This builds on the $1.5 billion already approved to deliver more than 6,100 projects nationwide under the first two phases of the program,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
