The Marshall Government’s 2019-20 State Budget is building a strong economy, growing jobs and delivering a bright future for South Australia. It is building a better future for our local community and all South Australians.
Our local community will benefit from the impacts of a strong economy, but also from investments such as:
The grade separation of the rail line at Brighton Road, Hove. This congestion busting project is a major win for our community. For more information, head to my website here.
$1.4 billion for schools and VET infrastructure, including capital upgrades to facilitate the transition of Year 7 into high school.
A landmark project costing $80 million to connect government schools in South Australia to high-speed internet.
$834 million to improve road safety.
$550 million to commence building a new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
$537 million in new health spending, including reactivating the Repatriation General Hospital. For more details on how we are building a better health system, click here
$2.5 million for infrastructure at the newly created Glenthorne National Park.
$104.5 million to support the housing industry and home buyers.
$52.4 million to help protect and secure our metropolitan beaches.
A new Tonsley Railway Station as part of the Flinders Link Project, including improved lighting, security and accessibility for residents and commuters.
$1m to for facilities and maintenance upgrades of State Emergency Service units.
More importantly, the State Budget will see a reduction in the cost of living expenses, including the reduction of Compulsory Third Party Insurance fees, reductions in energy bills for 120,000 low income households and the continuation of the $100 sports vouchers for primary school aged children.
