Roads to Recovery program

The Morrison government is also providing substantial roads funding directly to local councils under the Roads to Recovery program. The five local councils in Corangamite will receive $40.54m in funding between 2014/15 and 2018-19 as follows:

  • Colac Otway: $11.4m
  • Golden Plains: $8.7m
  • Greater Geelong: 13.8m
  • Queenscliff: $231k
  • Surf Coast: $6.3m

As ‘untied’ funding, councils are able to allocate this funding to their priority roads projects.
