Just Better Care

BY RAY WILLIAMS 2021-22 NSW Budget
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we promised to keep NSW safe and keep the economy open. Just one year on from the deepest recession in 80 years, our economy is back to growth and there are more jobs than before the crisis – a testament to our world-class response, and the resilience of our people.

The 2021-22 NSW Budget takes the next step, looking beyond the pandemic to take our State from recovery to transformation, creating a better NSW for your family and your future.

We are investing to keep NSW COVID-safe and to keep our recovery going, investing in you with more support to ease the cost of living pressures for families, and transforming our State with real reform for the future.

The NSW Government is funding a proposal to upgrade the intersection of Schofields Road and Windsor Road, Rouse Hill as part of local road improvements associated with the Sydney Metro Northwest project. Transport for NSW will be carrying out investigation work to help develop a detailed design for the proposal.

Similar to the Dine & Discover Vouchers (which have been extended until 31 July 2021), the new $100 Thank God It’s Friday program will turbocharge the Sydney CBD economy which was hit hard by COVID-19. The program, which is expected to go live before summer, will again be delivered via the Service NSW app. For information about the app visit: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/service-nswmobile- app
