Hawkesbury handed another $910K for local roads to be fixed and upgraded – total of $5.4m received

Hawkesbury Council has been handed $910,000 from the Federal Government under the Roads to Recovery Program in the latest cash splash to come Council’s way to help improve the local road network.

The Council will decide which road projects the money will be spent on.

In total Hawkesbury Council has been allocated $5.4m under the Program to deliver a better road network.

Once we hear back from Council we’ll let you know where the money is specifically going to be spent.

The Roads to Recovery Program was initially set up in 2020 to support jobs and recovery following the Covid pandemic.

The $910,000 is on top of money already allocated for upgrades along the Bells Line of Road and the installation of a pedestrian crossing at the Ross and Kable street intersection on Windsor’s Macquarie Street in Windsor. We’ve previously reported on those projects.

Senator for Western Sydney, the Hon Marise Payne, said the government was focused on delivering a better local road network.

“Securing funding for Council through our successful Roads to Recovery Program ensures a smoother, safer journey and supports jobs throughout the lifecycle of each project,” Senator Payne said.

“Infrastructure projects drive economic activity and create jobs which is why the government continues to invest in better roads across the Hawkesbury.

“Each project represents local jobs being supported as we come back from the COVID-19 pandemic,” Sen Payne said.
