Budget Wins For City Of Whittlesea

The City of Whittlesea has one of Australia’s fastest growing populations. Fortunately they also have a pro-active Council who are big-picture focused, with a view to backing the ongoing growth and development of local facilities to suitably support their growing population.

Many of the large projects that have been identified as being needed within the City of Whittlesea, such as main roads and public transport improvements, aren’t Council’s responsibility. But just because they can’t directly build them, doesn’t mean they can’t have a say. They  focus significant efforts into lobbying the Victorian and Federal governments, on behalf of the City of Whittlesea’s residents and businesses, for the important projects the City needs.

Each year before both governments release their annual budgets, the City of Whittlesea submits their wishlist of projects that they believe need to be funded.

This year the City of Whittlesea has had some wins for their community.

Victorian Budget

• Yan Yean Road duplication: $125 million for the duplication of Yan Yean Road in Plenty and $96.6 million for the stage 2 upgrade to the Yan Yean Road in Yarrambat

• $162.7 million to upgrade and expand inpatient infrastructure at the Northern Hospital

• Edgars Creek Primary School (land) funded as part of $70 million investment to purchase 11 sites across the state

• $13.8 million for the construction of Yarrambat Park Primary Proposed P-6

• $2 million for the installation of traffic lights at Plenty Road/Macmeikan Street/Laurel Street/Wallan Road

There was also funding for some ongoing projects:

• $600 million for the Mernda rail extension project

• $11 million for Mernda stabling and Broadmeadows government land purchase

• $15 million for the Mernda Police Station

• $2 billion in Community safety funding for Victoria Police – including 45 new Police Officers for the Whittlesea area

• $77.7 million for the O’Herns Road upgrade

• Funding for stage 1 and stage 2 upgrades to Plenty Road in Mill Park and South Morang

• $700 million over four years towards upgrades for the M80 Ring Road

• $100 million for the North East Link for planning and pre-construction activities

They continue to advocate for an Outer Suburban Arterial Roads Program to include Epping Road duplication, Bridge Inn Road duplication, Edgars Road extension, Findon Road, Childs Road duplication, Plenty Road duplication, Craigieburn Road East duplication.

Federal Budget

• O’Herns Road Interchange: The Federal and Victorian governments agreed to the $3 billion Victorian Infrastructure Package– which includes the construction of O’Herns Road Interchange.
This is of great benefit to the businesses within Northpoint Enterprise Park as it improves access to and from the Hume Freeway and to the Park and area in general

• Roads to Recovery: The Federal Government renewed its commitment of $4.4 billion from 2013-14 to 2020-21 for the construction, repair and upgrade of local roads – many are in the City of Whittlesea.
