“Infrastructure key to escaping recession: PM
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has praised the NSW government for the congestion-busting NorthConnex tunnel as a shining example of Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19. The $3 billion project is on the verge of opening after shovels hit the ground in 2016 – creating 8,700 jobs. “Infrastructure will be a key to jobs as we grow out of the COVID-19 recession,” Mr Morrison said after the first end-to-end drive through of the tunnel. Last Monday, Mr Morrison announced $1.5 billion of investment in accelerated projects and road works”.
