WESTERN AUSTRALIAN COUNCILS RECEIVE S45.3 MILLION FEDERAL FUNDING BOOST

The 138 local authority areas throughout Western Australia will be allocated $45.3 million for improvements to local roads this financial year.

Federal Land Transport Minister, Bob Brown, announced the grants today.

They are in addition to Federal Government spending on highways and other transport initiatives in Western Australia, which will total $172 million in 1990-91.

Perth metropolitan councils will receive $8 million for local road improvements, with the remainder to be spent in rural local authority areas.

Mr Brown said the money for councils would help maintain employment levels in country towns at a time when many were feeling the effects of falling commodity prices.

'The $45.3 million total is up by 6.8 per cent on last year. This level of funding meets the Federal Government1s commitment to maintain its local road grants in real terms this financial year1, Mr Brown said.

'For the first time, the grants are being distributed according to a new formula developed by the WA Main Roads Department in conjunction with the three local government associations in Western Australia.

1 These principles relate to road length and the cost of developing and maintaining a local road system within each city and shire.

'This should result in a fairer and better targeting of the available funds', he said.

'Much of the funding is untied. Councils can spend it according to their own priorities.

1A special reserve of $3.17 million has been allocated according to the recommendations of a special advisory committee established especially to consider submissions for specific purpose funding'.

Mr Brown said the road grants to councils were a supplement for the councils' own spending from rate revenue.

'They are not a substitute for rate money. Local roads remain the principal responsibility of each council. The Federal Government provides "top-up" assistance as part of its overall integrated land transport strategy.

'The Federal Government will allocate $323.8 million for local roads maintenance and improvements this financial year.

'This is in addition to $700 million in general purpose financial assistance grants paid to councils in 1990-911, Mr Brown said.
