Road projects, Health, and Education are big winners in New South Wales’ 2013-14 budget announced this week, with nearly $800 Million going to upgrade the Pacific Highway.

Another $57 Million will be spent on maintenance of state roads.

More than $20 Million is slated to upgrade and update projects at Lismore base Hospital, Kempsey District Hospital, and other health care facilities in NSW.

The budget also has good news for young folks trying to get the skills to get into the workplace, allocating funds for North Coast education projects, including a new Student Services Centre at Wollongbar TAFE, funding to continue construction of the new Lake Cathie Public School and over $6 million to continue work on Kingscliff TAFE’s new Automotive Building, as well as refurbishment of the TAFE’s Hair & Beauty, Hospitality and Aboriginal Student Services facilities.
