The Tasmanian majority Liberal Government is delivering job-creating infrastructure with a record $3.7 billion investment program right across the state.
Our Infrastructure Pipeline is a blueprint of public work, stretching out for the next 10 years and beyond, delivering economy building projects including roads, schools, hospitals, bridges and irrigation networks.
We are investing $1.6 billion over four years in roads and bridges that ensure safe and efficient travel for freight, tourists and other road users, including the Launceston and Tamar Valley Traffic Vision, the Tasman Highway Hobart Airport Interchange upgrade, and we are delivering the $92 million Perth Links Roads upgrade to the Midland Highway, well ahead of schedule.
We are progressing Hobart City Deal projects, including the Southern Outlet transit lane, bus priority measures on Macquarie and Davey Streets and work is underway on the $576 million Bridgewater Bridge, with geotechnical specialists on site last month to help inform the final design.
We are also investing $100 million for upgrades to the Bass Highway Wynyard to Marrawah Corridor, a vital freight and tourist corridor and work will soon start on the first of these projects at Boat Harbour.
This Government is investing $179 million in education infrastructure to ensure students have access to modern, state of the art schools, including new schools in the growth areas of Brighton and Legana.
Key initiatives include $15.5 million to establish TasTAFE Centres of Excellence in agriculture, trades and water, and in tourism and hospitality, and $5 million to upgrade nurse training facilities in the North and South.
Local businesses are thriving in this environment, with Tasmania recording the highest level of business confidence in the nation and our economic growth leading the country, resulting in a record number of jobs being created.
Encouragingly, now more than ever, we are seeing significant investment across the state from UTAS and the private sector.
Infrastructure spending by this Government was 230 per cent higher in 2018-19 compared to the last full year of the disastrous Labor-Green Government.
The facts are clear – the Tasmanian majority Liberal Government is investing in Tasmanians and building the job-creating infrastructure our growing state needs.
