The proposal Turnbull won't fund: 'Fowlers Road to Fairwater Drive link concept design', WCC
For the past 30 years Dapto locals have fought for the Fowlers Road extension and bridge. This project will create local jobs, reduce congestion and improve access between your home, the Dapto CBD, the Motorway and workplaces beyond.
The Turnbull Government have rejected $10 Million funding for this worthy, shovel-ready project, instead they chose to fund a motorsport recreational facility in Nowra.
It beggars belief that a motorsport track without planning approval could be given $9,532,500.00 over the Fowlers Road project.
This decision reveals a smug indifference to our region by Turnbull Government Ministers. An indifference which is also highlighted by the Government's total failure to assist the 500 retrenched Bluescope workers or make any of the necessary changes to protect Australian manufacturers from illegally imported steel.
Our region deserves better.
