Centre poor cousin in road funding

Central Australia is getting merely crumbs off the table in "a significant investment in bush roads across the Territory" by the Federal and NT Governments.

Malarndirri McCarthy, NT Minister for Regional Development, and Warren Snowdon, Member for Lingiari, announced today they would be committing $16m and $90m, respectively, to a "new Regional Roads Productivity Package" to "encourage growth and development in a number of communities and local industries".

The slice of that for Central Australia will be for "upgrading the gravel condition of priority sections" – no lengths or costs disclosed – of the Santa Teresa Way whose total length is about 70 kms.
