Tony Issa: "This Budget demonstrates that the government is delivering on its promises”


21 June 2013

This week’s State Budget, while based on tough economic decisions, continued with the government’s strategy to increase services, facilities and infrastructure for the Granville electorate.

Member for Granville Tony Issa said this today.

Mr Issa said the government had acted responsibly in reducing the debt left by the previous Labor government and at the same time invested in health, education, transport and housing in the Granville electorate.

“Investments in the Granville electorate outlined in the budget this week include:

           $76 million Lidcombe to Granville Corridor upgrade providing much needed infrastructure upgrades including bridge upgrades and signaling work along this critical rail corridor

           $2.3 million for housing for people living with a disability, their families and older people in the Guildford area

           Extra police numbers

           $3.58 million for the upgrade of metal and trades facilities at Granville TAFE

           Upgrades at Granville Boys High School and Merrylands High School

           Trade Training Centre at Granville Boys High School

           Funding for additional adult intensive care services at Westmead Hospital;

           Funding for additional neo natal intensive care services at Westmead Hospital

“In addition the government is committed to spending a total of $59.7 million on infrastructure over the next four years to deliver better services in public transport and roads.

“Despite the financial challenges facing the state, this Budget demonstrates that the government is delivering on its promises,” Mr Issa said.

He said the government had taken responsible decisions to ensure the state lived within its means, reduced its debt level and delivered better services to the people of Granville.
