Tasmania’s West Tamar region will receive $5 million worth of local projects thanks to Federal Liberal and Nationals Government funding.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said $3 million will be invested in the Beauty Point Master Plan.

“The funding means the Gravelly Beach Foreshore redevelopment will be completed. Access to the site will be improved, along with the addition of a new barbeque, shelters, car parks, pathways and landscaping works,” Mr McCormack said.  

The Nationals’ Senator for Tasmania Steve Martin said $2 million will also be invested in the Gravelly Beach Structure Plan.

“A rock wall will be built, we’ll restore the beach and make it much easier to access with a new pathway, car park and improved drainage and storm water works,” Senator Martin said.

Liberal Senator for Tasmania Wendy Askew said she is proud to be seeing these two projects through to fruition.

“The Liberals and Nationals are investing in local projects because we understand Australia is made of more than big infrastructure projects,” Senator Askew said.
