Round 1

Accelerated Infrastructure Fund

Round 1 of the Accelerated Infrastructure Fund provided $75.9 million to support the delivery of community infrastructure in high-growth areas of Blacktown and The Hills local government areas in north-west Sydney. This included funding councils to deliver local roads, stormwater infrastructure and public open space projects to unlock development opportunities for new homes and employment land.

Round 1 provided Blacktown City Council with $45 million and The Hills Shire Council with $30.96 million to co-fund and accelerate the delivery of 14 community infrastructure projects worth $145.99 million.
