ROAD funding has been given a boost with more than $1 million announced today for South Burnett and $27,755 for Cherbourg.

The funding comes from the federal government's $2.1 billion Roads to Recovery program and will be spent on road construction and street repairs.

Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said the money will be spent according to councils' individual priorities.

"Councils will be able to lodge their funding applications in October, to gain access to new payments under the Roads to Recovery program in November."
