NSW Budget 2019/20 Highlights

The recent 2019/20 Budget handed down by Treasurer Dominic Perrottet MP was a great budget for the people of Hawkesbury. Our community continued to receive funding for some major infrastructure projects including $31.4 million for the Windsor Bridge Replacement Project, a further $4.7 million for the Pitt Town Bypass and an additional $2 million for the planning of the third Hawkesbury River crossing. In addition, Richmond High School received $384,000 for renovations, $56.4 million has been allocated for land acquisition associated with the new Rouse hill hospital an injection of $15 million to help rejuvenate the town centres of Richmond, Windsor and South Windsor.
