Coogee Electorate to Benefit from a Soaring NSW Budget Result

Member for Coogee Bruce Notley-Smith said today’s Budget will continue record levels of investment in infrastructure like hospitals, schools, roads and public transport, ensuring the community of Coogee will continue to flourish.

The NSW 2017-18 Budget shows our state will have a record surplus of $4.5 billion in 2016-17, with an average surplus of $2.0 billion forecast for each of the next four years, and we continue to have no net debt. 

The Government is continuing with record levels of investment in infrastructure, with $72.7 billion committed over four years in this Budget.

The budget includes investment of $7.7 billion over four years for world-class hospitals and health infrastructure, and $4.2 billion over four years for new and improved schools.

Meanwhile, the Government is maintaining record levels of transport and road investment – totalling $41.4 billion over four years – getting commuters home faster to spend more time with their families.

Notley-Smith said the Government’s strong economic and financial management, and its successful reform agenda, means that Coogee is sharing in the world-class infrastructure and services announced today. 

“This Budget delivers real change for families, retirees, small business owners and residents living across the electorate of Coogee,” Notley-Smith said.

“This is a fantastic result for our community of Coogee.”
