Rural and Regional Roads Package

Dear Mr Vasta

Thank you for your letter of 1 December 2016 regarding a petition submitted to the committee encouraging the Victorian Government to contribute matching funding to the Rural and Regional Roads Package in Victoria.

I am pleased to advise that the Victorian Government wrote to me on

8 December 2016 agreeing to contribute $345 million to the Rural and Regional Roads Package. As a result, the $690 million package is fully funded and all of the projects committed to under the package, including those mentioned in the petition, can now proceed.

I trust this information will be of assistance.

Yours sincerely

from the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Mr Chester
