Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies said the NSW Budget will continue record levels of investment in infrastructure like hospitals, schools, roads and public transport, laying the foundations for communities across Western Sydney and New South Wales to flourish.
The NSW Budget 2017-18 shows New South Wales is expected to record a surplus of $4.5 billion in 2016-17, and average surpluses of $2.0 billion forecast over the four years to 2020-21. These surpluses are being reinvested into our communities.
The Government is continuing with record levels of investment in infrastructure, with $72.7 billion committed over four years in this Budget, including investment of $7.7 billion over four years for hospitals and health infrastructure, and $4.2 billion over four years for new and improved schools.
Meanwhile, the Government is maintaining record levels of transport and road investment – totaling $41.4 billion over four years – getting commuters home faster to spend more time with their families.
Mrs Davies said the Government’s strong economic and financial management, and its successful reform agenda, means that Mulgoa is sharing in the world-class infrastructure and services announced today.
“This Budget delivers real change for families, retirees, small business owners and residents living across the electorate of Mulgoa, laying the foundation for future growth across our community,” Mrs Davies said.
