NSW Government: A$645 million

NSW Government funding of $645 million was announced in the 2018-19 Budget. This funding assumed the government would recoup $195 million from the sale of the Ultimo facility, which in July 2020 the NSW Government announced would be retained.

The 2020-21 NSW Budget did not profile any funding for the project due to commercial sensitivities.
