EXPLANATORY STATEMENT – INSTRUMENT 2015/3

 

Issued by Authority of the Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development

 

Subject - National Land Transport Act 2014

 

Roads to Recovery List 2014

 

Allocations for the Roads to Recovery Programme, to run from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2019, were determined on 12 September 2014 (see Roads to Recovery List 2014 Instrument No. 1).

 

Under s.88(2B) of the National Land Transport Act 2014, the List may be varied to increase an amount specified for a person or body in the List.

 

On 23 June 2015 the Australian Government announced that it will provide an additional $1.105 billion for the Roads to Recovery Programme over the next two years.  This instrument increases the allocation for each body in the List by their share of the June 2015 additional funding.

 

The additional funding has been allocated using the same splits between states and territories and unincorporated areas as was used in determining the allocations in the original list and the increases for individual councils are based on the recommendations of the relevant local government grants commission for the 2014‑15 roads component of the Financial Assistance Grants.  This is the same formula used for the allocations in the original List.

 

The instrument commences on 30 September 2015 with payments from the June 2015 additional funding to commence from November 2015.
