Major projects are set to commence following last night’s federal budget, including a Highway bypass of Truro.

Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP said he was thrilled that after years of lobbying efforts the Truro Bypass has been included in the budget with a $202 million funding windfall allocated to the project.

The Federal Government has allocated $161.6 million to the project with the South Australian State Government to allocate the remaining $40.4 million.

The project is expected to support 555 direct and indirect jobs with construction to begin in late 2022 and be completed by late 2026.
