Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly is delighted to announce that the NSW state budget delivered today allows people all over the state to benefit from the responsible financial management and discipline of the Liberal-National Government over the last 6 years.

"Not only is the Government continuing its record investments in transport and hospital infrastructure but this year's budget sees record education investment added to that list," said Mr Conolly.

Some of the highlights for Riverstone electorate and the region are:

2 new primary schools to be built at Schofields (funding 2017-18) and Marsden Park (2018-19).
Additional classrooms to be built at 4 existing schools; Riverbank Public School, Schofields Public School, Quakers Hill East Public School and Riverstone High School.
A new bus service Route 747 which will run between Marsden Park and Rouse Hill Town Centre via Riverstone.
An extension to the Route 751 Blacktown to Marsden Park service which will continue to Rouse Hill Town Centre via Schofields.
A new fire station at Marsden Park (funded in 2018-19).
Riverstone Wastewater Treatment Plant amplification ($53m).
The Denmark Link Road from the Garfield Road West, Riverstone to the Westminster Street Bridge at Schofields ($11m).
First stage of the Memorial Avenue, Kellyville upgrade ($16m). This project includes an upgrade of the Old Windsor Road intersection.
Schofields Road $44 million (Stage 2 completion and continuing Stage 3).
Palliative care service in Western Sydney $38m.
Youth on Track program in Blacktown, Mount Druitt and Quakers Hill $740,000
Planning for the Outer Sydney Orbital corridor between the Macarthur region and the Hawkesbury.

"On top of that, the numbers of doctors, nurses, police and teachers continue to grow as front line services are given priority. Palliative Care services have received a huge funding boost and there are extra resources committed to child protection, combatting domestic violence and addressing homelessness," said Mr Conolly.

Meanwhile, the government's focus on increasing housing supply is paying off as dwelling approvals and completions continue to rise and the first home buyers package will help more people to break into the housing market.

"And of course the North West Metro is on track to open in 2019," Mr Conolly said.

"Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Treasurer Dominic Perrottet have delivered an outstanding range of investments in the infrastructure and services needed by the people of NSW," said Mr Conolly.
