Bass Highway

(Question No. 624)

Ms Keay asked the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, in writing, on 22 November 2016:

In respect of the Government's election commitment to provide $500,000 to fund a comprehensive study on the Bass Highway between Cooee and Wynyard, will this be honoured; if not, why not; if so, (a) what will be the process for the (i) Waratah Wynyard, (ii) Burnie City Council, or (iii) Tasmanian Government, to receive this funding, and (b) when will the funding be delivered.

Mr Chester: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Australian Government has confirmed its commitment of $500,000 toward a comprehensive road safety and traffic flow study on the Bass Highway between Cooee and Wynyard.

Funding will be paid to the local government through the Tasmanian Government on the basis of project need.
