The 2024-25 NSW Budget is out. You can read it in full here.

The Budget has allocated funding for many Northern Rivers road and bridge projects.

Some of the funded projects in the Lismore Electorate include:

● $2.55million in grants to Kyogle Council towards a program to replace the LGA’s remaining 30 timber and composite bridges.

● $4million in grants to Kyogle Council towards improving flood immunity of the Clarence Way between Sandilands and Bonalbo.

● $5.5million for safety improvements on the Bruxner Highway.

● A $3.1million grant to Tenterfield Shire Council to complete the Mount Lindesay Road upgrade between Legume and Woodenbong.

● $175,000 for seven school crossing supervisors for sites across Lismore Electorate.

● $1 million to start planning for a major upgrade of the Alphadale Crossroads intersection on the Bruxner in Lismore City LGA.

The information in this report was provided by the office of State MP Janelle Saffin.

Correction: Initially the headline read ’30 bridges’ and has been changed to ‘bridges’ only as the money allocated will only do 2 to 3 bridges as part of the 30-bridge program.
