The Albanese and Minns Governments are building back infrastructure in Eden-Monaro, making our community more resilient to natural disasters.
In the Snowy Valleys, the Albanese Government is helping to deliver $3.5m funding for the betterment of the Elliott Way road corridor through the jointly-funded Infrastructure Betterment Fund and Community Local Infrastructure Recovery Package – Community Assets Program.
The Infrastructure Betterment Fund is focused on building back essential public assets, such as roads, bridges and drainage impacted by the storm and flood events in 2021 and 2022, as well as the 2019/2020 Black Summer bushfires.
The Community Assets Program is repairing and building back community assets, including parks, walkways, community buildings, and tourism and recreational facilities, impacted by the storm and flood events in February and June 2022.
Member for Eden-Monaro Kristy McBain said the Albanese Government is committed to ongoing disaster recovery.
“The project will deliver geotechnical risk reduction works along the Elliott Way Road corridor to stabilise the fire affected slopes and reduce the risk of landslips and rockfalls onto the road,” Ms McBain said.
“This funding will extend on the recent works on Elliot Way, making it easier and safer for our residents to travel.” Ms McBain said.
