NSW Budget: Securing a brighter future for Mulgoa

The 2022-23 NSW Budget has provided an enormous boost for the Mulgoa community. The Budget is committed to delivering a brighter future for families,
supporting family budgets and continuing our record infrastructure investment. The NSW Budget is delivering investments with a strong focus on cost of living relief, empowering women and building strong foundations for children to have the best start to life.

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies, today welcomed the NSW Budget’s blueprint for reform to create opportunity and help our communities prosper. “This Budget prioritises the support of families. I welcome the critical investments that have been made and I look forward to the brighter future it will deliver for families in my electorate,” Mrs Davies said.

“With enormous investments being made in unlocking the economy for women through expanding childcare and making preschool more affordable this Budget sets up NSW
for a bright and more prosperous future.”

“From upgrades to our most important roads such as Mulgoa Road and Mamre Road to investing in our children’s future as well as initiatives that help get women into the workforce and bolstering the State’s economy, this Budget shows that the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government can be trusted to keep NSW on the right track and deliver on our promises.”

“I am especially pleased with commitments being made for our children’s future, especially in Mulgoa where the budget allocates over $18 million for the continued construction of the Mulgoa Rise Public School.”

The NSW Budget will also deliver cost of living relief for families. Over $500 million is being allocated to ensure that families can see relief when they use toll roads and over $190 million will be dedicated to a Back to School Subsidy to help families cover the cost of school supplies.

  • $6.3 million to commence the upgrades at Cecil Hills High School.
  • $18.7 million to continue construction of the new public school in Mulgoa Rise.
  • $24 million to complete the planning and commence construction to widen and upgrade Mamre Road between the M4 Motorway and Erskine Park Road.
