Funding to the tune of $5.4 million has been dedicated to South Australian airports under the Regional Aviation Access Program.
The financial commitment will ensure that communities become more accessible, with improvements to drive growth, according to Parliamentary Secretary for Infrastructure and Transport, Catherine King.
The projects are in a wide range, “From large, strategic investments at … Mimili in South Australia, to smaller upgrades,” Ms King said.
Through this commitment, SA will have the most areas to benefit with Nepabunna, Yalata, Mimili, Kimba, Streaky Bay, Hawker, Maralinga, Marla, William Creek and Mungerannie all expected to see funding for improvements to the tune of $1,902,443. Of this total, Mimli will benefit most significantly with $1,255,000 of the total.
The Northern Territory and Western Australia will both see six areas funded, however SA has taken the lion’s share of the funding.
