Libs say Macarthur getting good deal from federal budget

NSW Senator Marise Payne says more than 76,000 taxpayers in the electorate of Macarthur will benefit from tax cuts announced in the federal budget last week.

She says the budget also contains critical measures such as instant asset write-off, to support the thousands of businesses that call Macarthur home.

“A local cafe owner who might have been holding back on purchasing a new fridge, for example, is now in a much better position to make that choice. In turn, it’s our small businesses who buy, sell, deliver, install, and service these purchases,’’ Senator Payne said.

Good deal for Macarthur: Senator Marise Payne with Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The Morrison Government was also delivering record infrastructure investment across Western Sydney, including in Macarthur, according to Senator Payne, including:

  • Over $8.9 million in 2020-21 for the upgrade of Appin Road;
  • Over $234 million in 2020-21 for The Northern Road upgrade;
  • Over $3.7 million in 2020-21 for the Raby Precinct intersections upgrade;
  • Over $3.7 million in 2020-21 for the Badgally Road project, which is set to be complete this year;
  • $25 million for the widening and upgrade of Bringelly Road, which is set to be complete this year.
  • Campbelltown City Council will receive over $6.3 million under an extension of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program;
  • $3 million for the commuter car park upgrade at Campbelltown Station;
  • Funding for the commuter car park at Macarthur Station;
  • $4.3 million in 2020-21 for the Campbelltown Centre of Health and Sport Excellence.

“We are delivering over $228 million for safer roads and improved community infrastructure in Macarthur which means jobs, jobs, jobs,’’ Senator Payne said.

 “Locals are benefiting from this wave of investment, which is supporting jobs and linking the region to the opportunities connected to the Western Sydney Airport and the Western Sydney City Deal.”
