2019 Budget

The Australian Government is investing $100 billion over 10 years from 2019-20 through its rolling infrastructure plan to help manage our growing population, meet our national freight challenge and get Australians home sooner and safer. This includes an additional $23 billion of new funding in the 2019–20 Budget for new projects and initiatives that will benefit every state and territory and provide local job opportunities.

Through the 2019-20 Budget, we are investing an additional $2.2 billion through the new Local and State Government Road Safety Package to improve safety on our roads, including directly targeting our worst accident zones.
