The results are in: How did Elliot score during her time?
WITH the Federal Election just weeks away, we take a look at sitting member Justine Elliot's track record for the past term.
We've focused on what Mrs Elliot promised leading up to the 2010 election, as documented in the Daily News, and what she has delivered.
Fixing Sexton Hill blackspot:
The NSW Minister for Planning approved the Pacific Hwy upgrade at Banora Point in February 2009 to fix the notorious blackspot.
The Federal Government contributed $349 million to this section and the State Government $10 million.
Upgrading 90 schools:
Mrs Elliot says $115 million invested in 205 projects in 90 local schools was completed in 2012.
Mrs Elliot said in 2010: "Every child should have the chance of a quality education in 21st century facilities, and I am committed to making sure all of our children have access to the best possible education."
A $7 million GP Super Clinic at Tweed Heads:
Was officially opened by Elliot and Minister for Health Tanya Plibersek in July this year. During the 2010 election campaign, Ms Elliot said it would make "a vital difference to North Coast families".
Building Murwillumbah Community Centre:
The Federal Government delivered $2 million of funding towards the construction of the $3.1 million Community Centre, which opened in November last year. Mrs Elliot said on the day of the opening she had "promised, committed and delivered" on her funding promise.
Fast and reliable broadband access via the NBN:
The rollout of the $37.4 billion project has suffered delays nationally due to challenges faced by subcontractors.
Work has not yet started on this project in the Tweed but Burringbar residents have been approached about hosting an NBN tower.
Public information sessions were also held across the Northern Rivers in February.
NBN wrote to Tweed Shire Council in February informing that plans were currently being finalised for fixed-wireless facilities in the shire. During the last campaign, Ms Elliot said "fast and reliable broadband access is integral to our education and health systems".
