Since coming to government, Labor has delivered more than $37 million in road projects in our region, across more than 30 separate projects.
We backed that up in May this year with a huge funding injection for regional roads in the budget.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 delivered the biggest road maintenance blitz Victoria has ever seen.
Labor’s funding will fix hundreds of regional roads, giving drivers safer, faster and more reliable journeys.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 allocated $941 million to get on with the job of fixing Victoria’s regional road network, saving lives and establishing a dedicated country roads body.
In addition to the record maintenance spend, a $100 million Fixing Country Roads fund will be established to provide grants to rural and regional councils to fix their local roads.
The Andrews Labor Government is continuing to invest in road safety, with a further $229 million to save lives on Victoria’s most high-risk roads through the Towards Zero Road Safety Action Plan, with new overtaking lanes, rumble strips and intersection upgrades.
