“The NSW state budget has delivered funding for the Rouse Hill Hospital project, housing, roads and a new fire station in Sydney’s north west as well as an expansion of Rouse Hill Regional Park, but most of all it has delivered a massive injection of funds into school projects across the growth areas of north western Sydney,” said Kevin Conolly, Member for Riverstone.
This budget’s allocations to already announced school projects are:
- Glenwood High School upgrade $50 million
- John Palmer Public School $35 million
- New primary school Tallawong $15 million
- Galungara Public School stage 2 $9.2 million
- Marsden Park High School $10.6 million
New commitments have also received planning allocations:
- New primary school for Nirimba Fields $445,000
- New primary school for Melonba $1.7 million
- Riverbank Public school Stage 3 upgrade $354,000
- Schofields Public school upgrade $56,000
- Rouse Hill High school upgrade $487,000
- New primary school Box Hill (Gables) $1.7 million
These new and upgraded school projects are part of the largest ever investment in school infrastructure in NSW history.
They follow the delivery in previous years of many new schools: The Ponds High School, Riverbank Public school, The Ponds School, South Creek school, Northbourne Public School and Galungara Public School as well as upgrades at several other schools across the region.
This year’s state budget contains $11.7 million to commence construction of Stage 1 of the Rouse Hill Hospital, as planned.
“The commitment made in 2019 was to commence construction of Stage 1 of the hospital by 2023. This is exactly what is occurring,” said Mr Conolly.
There is also $7 million to commence construction of the Denmark Link Road project.
An allocation of $5.2 million has been included to build a new NSW Fire and Rescue station at Marsden Park.
An allocation of $10 million has been include to enable planning for the upgrade of Richmond Road between Elara Boulevarde and Heritage Road.
“The NSW Liberal Nationals Government is continuing to provide the infrastructure and services to support the people of NSW, especially in growth areas like the north west of Sydney,” Mr Conolly said.
