Infrastructure investment tops $80 million in Goulburn Mulwaree

Wednesday, 30 January 2019

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor will be fighting for $10 million in Federal funding for a major redevelopment of the Goulburn Aquatic Centre in 2019, as part of ongoing Coalition infrastructure investment that has already topped $80 million across Goulburn Mulwaree.

Mr Taylor said the Coalition Government was investing heavily in the growth corridor around Goulburn, to create jobs and economic growth, to encourage small businesses to expand and new businesses to start up, as well as to promote tourism to the region.

“Council is well advanced with project investigation and planning for the Aquatic Centre redevelopment,” Mr Taylor said.

“Stage 1 of the redevelopment, which will see expansion of the indoor aquatic facilities, is well-targeted to meet community needs in our cool climate and to maximise participation.

“The project is expected to generate well in excess of 400 full time jobs and have significant flow-on economic benefits for the Goulburn region.”

Mr Taylor said Federal funding for capital works in the Goulburn Mulwaree region – including major capital works projects, bridge and road upgrades, mobile phone towers, the NBN rollout, Goulburn Headspace, the Country University Centre, tourism facilities, smaller community capital works, as well as recurrent Federal roads funding – had topped $80 million over the past five years.

NBN rollout                                                                   over $235 mill for Hume rollout
