Liberals’ plan for Bass: investing in North-East Tasmania


As part of my plan for Bass, North-East Tasmanians will benefit from a range of infrastructure upgrades to improve roads and facilities in the region.

Following feedback from the community and Dorset Council, we are investing in five projects in the North-East as part of our Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

  • $400,000 towards safety improvements for Cascade Dam Road, Derby
  • $100,000 towards restoration of Scottsdale Railway Station
  • $700,000 towards Victoria Street, Scottsdale reconstruction
  • $130,00 to Bridport CWA carpark extension
  • $172,336 towards Derby car park redevelopment

Not only will these investments create and support jobs, they will build the infrastructure for the future that our community needs.

Importantly, these projects will improve safety and provide better community facilities.

I’m passionate about working very closely with the north-east community to ensure their infrastructure needs are met.

This program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across the country, supporting jobs and resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
