|Title:||Financing Sustainability in Local Government: an analysis of the Roads to Recovery Program in New South Wales local government||Contributor(s):||Lopez, Margaret Helena (author); Dollery, Brian Edward (author); Byrnes, Joel David (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/6966||Abstract:||A crisis has developed in the maintenance and renewal of vital Australian local infrastructure that has attracted the attention of several recent public inquiries and some academic scholarship. However, an unfortunate feature of the subsequent debate on the local infrastructure crisis has been its almost total neglect of the role of the Commonwealth 'Roads to Recovery' Program which has helped to alleviate this crisis. Using the institutional context of 'Roads to Recovery' funding to New South Wales local government, this paper seeks to remedy this neglect by presenting an initial exploratory analysis of the operation of the 'Roads to Recovery' Program.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Public Policy, 3(2), p. 141-158||Publisher:||John Curtin Institute of Public Policy, Curtin University of Technology||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1833-2110||Field of Research (FOR):||140218 Urban and Regional Economics||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||910299 Microeconomics not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.business.curtin.edu.au/index.cfm?objectid=26917022-D901-C80F-DEB71923B2BB01FC||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 195
