JUST under $290million has been allocated for major road upgrades across regional Queensland under the Federal Government’s Road Safety Program, $43million of which will be spent in the vast Maranoa electorate alone.

The funding will combine with $65million provided by the State Government, according to a joint press release from Maranoa MP David Littleproud and Infrastructure Minister Michael McCormack.

“I’m pleased to see roads in our regional communities being prioritised, with $43,460,000 to be invested across 19 vital road safety projects in Maranoa,” Mr Littleproud said.

“I have been advocating for these road safety upgrades to help get Australians home sooner and safer, and that’s exactly what our Liberal and Nationals Government will now deliver.

“This funding is subject to “use it or lose it” provisions which means these projects will be delivered soon – if they aren’t, these funds will be reallocated – the Federal Government means business.”

Below is the list of road projects in the Maranoa electorate.
