Agricultural local road funding for Councils

The Victorian Government is supporting councils to undertake local road projects that improve access for the agriculture and food supply chain sector.

AgriLinks Upgrade Program (closed)

The $20 million AgriLinks Upgrade Program (AUP) is funding shovel-ready local road improvement projects to support jobs and bolster the state’s agri-food sector.

AUP provides rural, regional and interface councils with up to $350,000 for eligible road improvement projects. Additional funding is available on a co-contribution basis.

AUP is funding local road, intersection and bridge improvement projects that:

  • benefit the agriculture or food sector
  • are ‘shovel ready’
  • can be completed within 18 months of commencement.

The $20 million funding is part of the $2.7 billion Building Works package which is getting thousands of people back to work on crucial infrastructure projects.

Projects funded under AUP will strengthen business productivity, support local communities and assist Victorian farm businesses, agricultural supply-chains and agri-food producers to grow.

AUP opened in August 2020. All eligible councils have been provided information on AUP by Agriculture Victoria.

AUP supported 50 road and infrastructure projects.

AUP is now closed for applications.
