Federal Member for Brand Madeleine King MP has welcomed almost $2 million in Commonwealth funding for roads and infrastructure in Kwinana and Rockingham.
Ms King today announced the Government had committed $1,343,042 for the City of Rockingham and $534,720 for the City of Kwinana through Phase 4 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LCRI) Program.
Ms King said the funding is a big win for the communities of Rockingham and Kwinana.
“Brand is one of the fastest growing communities in WA and it is vital that our local roads and infrastructure are fit to meet the needs of local people,” Ms King said.
“I am so proud to be part of the Albanese Government that is delivering this investment in our local community.
“I will be working closely with both the City of Rockingham and the City of Kwinana to deliver the infrastructure our community needs and deserves.
“Our local government authorities will be able to access their Phase 4 funding allocations from July, with projects to be delivered by June 2025,” Ms King said.
Further details about the program are available on the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program website.
The LRCI program supports councils to deliver priority road and community infrastructure projects in their region, creating jobs and long-lasting benefits for local communities.
The Albanese Government is allocating $500 million under the program. Councils across Australia will be able to spend funding on local road and community infrastructure projects.
An additional $250 million will go towards supporting road projects in rural, regional, and outer urban areas, delivering on a commitment made during the 2022 election.
Guidelines and grant agreements will be finalised by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications, and the Arts over the coming months.
