Speech: Roads and Infrastructure in Gilmore Main Image

Mrs PHILLIPS (Gilmore) (16:16): When it comes to local infrastructure I'm proud to be part of the Albanese Labor government that's just getting on with it, whether it is the Jervis Bay flyover that is in major construction mode, with $100 million in funding from the Albanese Labor government, or early planning for the Nowra bypass, with $97 million from the Albanese Labor government, or the $752 million for the Milton Ulladulla bypass from the Albanese Labor government. It's only me, as the member of Gilmore and as part of the Albanese Labor government, that is funding these roads and more.



I'm proud to support important local community infrastructure, such as: the new Gerringong Surf Life Saving Club, with $5.5 million in funding under the Albanese Labor government; the much-needed headspace at Kiama; $800,000 in funding for supported assisted independent living units at Jindelara Cottage in Ulladulla; $40 million for local Shoalhaven roads; a Medicare urgent care clinic at Batemans Bay; $7.5 million for the new Sanctuary Point District Library; bushfire-proof composite power poles for South Durras; $5 million for the Eurobodalla Emergency Services Precinct; new mobile phone towers at Termeil and Cullendulla; more NBN to the premises; and many more infrastructure projects funded by the Albanese Labor government. There are also hundreds of millions of dollars in bushfire and natural disaster roads and recovery projects.

I'm also pleased to say that local defence and defence industry businesses have finally got a local member in government that understands their needs and is committed to record investments in defence skills, jobs and infrastructure.
