Albo and Justine's North Coast Infrastructure Boost

Working with the NSW Labor Government, the Albanese Labor Government is making a MASSIVE investment in our community to rebuild and future-proof our local infrastructure.

We're providing more than $121 million in disaster funding for over 50 local infrastructure projects to build and rebuild more resilient North Coast infrastructure.

The Infrastructure Betterment Fund
is focused on building back essential public assets, such as roads, bridges and drainage impacted by storm and flood events in 2021 and 2022, as well as the 2019/2020 Black Summer bushfires. Funding will mean assets are repaired to a more resilient standard that can better withstand future natural disasters, while also delivering associated economic, social and productivity benefits. 

The Community Assets Program is about repairing and building back community assets, including parks, walkways, community buildings, and tourism and recreational facilities, impacted by storm and flood events in 2022.
