  3. Ensure the network connects communities to services
  4. Strengthen communities.

Stimulus programs

Fixing Local Roads program

Fixing Local Roads is a $500 million NSW Government program, providing funding to councils to assist in reducing the local roads maintenance backlog. Councils can apply for funding to assist in repairing, patching, maintaining or sealing existing priority council roads.

Fixing Country Bridges program

Fixing Country Bridges is a $500 million NSW Government program that aims to create a new legacy for our local road network, enabling councils to replace hundreds of timber bridges in poor condition and better connect regional and rural communities. The program aims to reduce the maintenance and renewal burden on councils and improve accessibility for local and regional communities.

Worker safety

We have increased efforts to ensure construction workers comply with Australian and NSW health directions in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Measures include an increased focus on personal hygiene, ensuring any high risk employees such as older workers are not coming to work and conducting daily screenings for signs of illness prior to workers entering a site.

Further information on suggested controls all businesses can use to prevent exposure to Coronavirus, including SafeWork NSW advice, can be found at nsw.gov.au.
