The federal and state governments will jointly fund 14 shovel-ready projects expected to support 700 jobs during the coronavirus recovery.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says further investment in infrastructure will play a critical role in helping Queensland’s economy.

“Partnering with state and territory governments to invest in more major infrastructure projects across Australia is a key part of our JobMaker plan to rebuild our economy and create more jobs,” he said on Monday

Projects in the NT will have $53 million pumped into them, while roads in the ACT will get $35 million in funding brought forward.
