I'm pleased to inform parliament that $5.1 million in federal funding has been delivered to the City of Joondalup under phase 2 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program. This funding contribution from the federal government provides a major financial subsidy to our local government authority, enabling it to carry out a range of local projects, including the refurbishment of community centres, the construction of pathways to improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians, and to build new community facilities, resurface roads in poor repair and provide more local car parks.

In particular, I would like to highlight that $795,000 has been spent on constructing a dual-use pathway along busy Marmion Avenue, between Prendiville Avenue right up to Burns Beach Road, linking three suburbs. A further $1.2 million has been spent on the dual-use path from the Westview car park to Ocean Reef Marina. The funding has also enabled the refurbishment of community facilities at several local sporting reserves, including Seacrest Park, Admiral Park, Forrest Park, Gibson Park, Flinders Park, Timberlane Park, Bramston Park, the Connolly Community Centre, and the Warrandyte Club Room. Our community is benefiting from record levels of federal funding.
