Minister for Transport
Budget 2015 commits a record investment of $587.1 million to transport infrastructure, connecting Territorians wherever they live and work.
Minister for Transport Peter Chandler welcomed the record investment and said it is aimed at connecting people and creating jobs, while making life simper, safer and smarter for all Territorians.
"The program has been framed to develop the Northern Territory through job creation and economic development with particular focus on, tourism cattle supply and urban regional transport," Mr Chandler said.
Budget highlights for roads infrastructure, fully funded by the Northern Territory Government include:
An estimated additional 219 kilometres of new sealed roads will be constructed as a result of the 2015 budget.
"Transport infrastructure supports the community and facilitates economic development," Mr Chandler said.
"The record spend recognises the importance of transport infrastructure to the development of Northern Australia to unlock the potential opportunities in our remote and regional areas."
