Mid North Coast welcomes fast tracking of funds
THE fast tracking of local infrastructure projects by the Federal Government is welcome as long as priority projects are put first, according to a Mid North Coast business group.
The Federal Government has announced it will fast track its nation-building agenda in the key areas of education, health and transportation, including a commitment of $12.6 billion towards transport infrastructure.
It's money that NSW Business Chamber Mid North Coast regional manager, Kellon Beard, would like to see spent on upgrading major roads and the completion of 64km of upgrades already underway or approved for the Pacific Highway.
“The economic success of the region will be determined by the delivery of efficient and safe transport links,” Mr Beard said.
