Funding For Copper Coast Community Infrastructure


The Rudd Labor Government will provide $115,000 for a ready-to-go community infrastructure project on the Copper Coast as part of our plan to support jobs in the local economy while delivering lasting benefits to communities.


Minister for Infrastructure and Local Government Anthony Albanese said that the new funding would go towards the construction of a bus terminal in Kadina, including the installation of a pedestrian bridge, new paving, a septic tank and landscaping.


"Importantly, this project is expected to support up to three local jobs during construction.


"We will deliver this funding to the District Council of the Copper Coast from the second round of our Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP).


"In just over a year, this Program has delivered over $1 billion to build and renew community facilities across Australia, making it the largest single investment in local infrastructure in the nation's history.


"Already more than 3,300 community construction projects have either been completed or are underway through the first round.


"The project announced today was put forward by the local council as a community priority.


"Some of these projects have been on the drawing board for years. By letting local communities decide, the Rudd Government is helping turn the community's vision into a reality.


"Across the country the RLCIP is funding sporting fields, swimming pools, libraries, community halls, water and energy saving facilities, improving elderly and disabled access and other local projects.


"I expect to announce the approval of the remaining councils' projects shortly," Mr Albanese concluded.
