Moruya Airport To Soar Thanks To New Funding

Moruya Airport has received $300,000 to improve safety and accessibility thanks to the Australian Government’s $100 million Regional Airports Program, Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips MP has announced.

The funding boost will mean Moruya Airport can renew its security fencing, improve the windsock lighting, add additional runway gables and replace the taxiway lighting poles.

Fiona Phillips said the Albanese Government continues to invest in our regions, supporting people on the South Coast and improving local assets.

“I am absolutely delighted to see Moruya Airport getting the support it deserves to service our community safely and effectively,” Fiona Phillips said.

The Gilmore MP said regional airports are a lifeline for our economy, cutting commuting times for local people and getting our local produce to national and international markets.

“Not only that, but many people rely on air services for healthcare, emergency services and more,” she said.

“This investment will create more jobs, help local farmers, and support our social and economic connections across Australia – great news for local people.”

The Regional Airports Program provides grants to improve the safety and accessibility of airports or aerodromes in our regions.

This program has supported 150 projects across regional Australia with nearly $71 million in funding under the first two rounds.
