$900 million request to grow jobs

By Staff Reporter

Jobs, opportunities and the economy are set to be given a multi-million dollar injection that will shape the area over the next decade, according to recent government announcements.

Infrastructure growth has been encouraged in Tasmania, with a new submission “all about growing our economy, creating jobs and opportunities, and making our roads safer and more efficient," said infrastructure minister David O'Byrne said.

"We're talking generationally significant projects that will help shape Tasmania over the next decade and beyond,” said Mr O’Byrne.

The Economic Development Plan focuses on diversifying the economy and building significant infrastructure, and part of this was applying for $900 million worth of funding through the Australian Government's Nation Building 2 Program (NB2).

The NB2 is a five-year program that will commence on 1 July 2014.

The Tasmanian submission also includes a ‘comprehensive transport strategy’ with details from minister for sustainable transport, Nick McKim, pending.

In total, the submission includes requests for the funding of 22 projects, of which $618 million (eight projects) is focused on freight.
