Guidelines released for third phase of Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program

Guidelines for the third phase are now online, meaning councils can now start nominating their priority projects for funding to flow to.

Local councils can soon share in $1 billion in funding to improve their local road networks and deliver priority community infrastructure projects under the third phase of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.

Guidelines for the third phase are now online, meaning councils can now start nominating their priority projects for funding to flow to.

Across all three phases, the program is delivering a total of $2.5 billion to local governments, with $1.495 billion already out the door and supporting over 6,100 projects nationwide.

Councils can nominate a broad range of local road projects for funding under the program, such as traffic signs, street lighting, bridges, tunnels, rest areas or even road and sidewalk improvements.

Community infrastructure projects can include upgrading park and play facilities, installing Wi-Fi networks or safety-boosting closed circuit TV, or improving bike and walking paths.
