Fast track program

Delivering jobs and supporting local business during COVID-19

The ACT Government is fast tracking infrastructure projects to deliver jobs and support local business.

The program focuses on work that can start immediately and supports local jobs, businesses and our Canberra community.

The projects include infrastructure and maintenance work on government-owned community buildings, schools and other facilities across the city.

The $35 million program will support the ACT economy and provide Canberrans with better infrastructure and services long into the future.
