Green secures funds for a safer Epping-Kilmore Road

The Andrews Government is taking action to boost safety on Epping-Kilmore Road between Craigieburn Road and the Hume Highway, after lobbying by Yan Yean MP, Danielle Green. Ms Green today announced a $244,000 upgrade to address a trend of crashes along a 37 kilometre section of Epping-Kilmore Road, particularly on curves. “Safety on Epping-Kilmore Road has been an issue for me and many local residents for some time and I’m really glad the Government has agreed to fund some improvements, Ms Green said. The safety improvement package includes new and upgraded guideposts on curves, advisory and advance warning signs ahead of curves, alignment markers on high-risk curves and rumble strips to alert drivers if they drift off the road. “This section of Epping-Kilmore Road provides a major connection between Epping and Wandong and carries approximately 3000 vehicles per day,” Ms Green said. “Residents have told me of numerous minor accidents and near misses on the road. In fact, over the last five-years, there were 28 crashes on Epping-Kilmore Road between Northern Highway and Craigieburn Road, including 17 which occurred on curves,” she said. “Epping-Kilmore Road is an important link and we’re making it safer by improving the safety of road curves so we can reduce the risk and likelihood of crashes,” Ms Green said. The Safe System Road Infrastructure Program is funded by the Transport Accident Commission and delivered by VicRoads. It is an important part of the Labor Government’s Towards Zero road safety vision – which is to have a 15 per cent reduction in serious injuries and less than 200 deaths on Victorian roads by 2020. Works will start in December and be completed by March 2017

Wallan Secondary College to get a doctor

Wallan Secondary College students will have regular access to a doctor and the healthcare they need at school under a new program from the Andrews Government. The Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green, today announced Wallan Secondary College was one of 100 schools taking part in the Doctors in Schools Program. Participating schools will partner with local doctors who will be on site for up to one day a week, with students able to get referrals to specialists and the help they need before it affects their studies. Ms Green said half of the schools participating in the program are located in regional Victoria, where families often face barriers to accessing healthcare. A further 25 schools taking part in the program are located in Melbourne’s growth areas and urban fringe to help meet demand for services created by Victoria’s unprecedented population growth. “Having a doctor at their school will give Wallan Secondary College students reliable healthcare, reduce the pressure on working parents and GPs, and help the students identify and address their health concerns early,” Ms Green said. “We all know that happy, healthy and resilient students learn better, stay in school longer and achieve more,” she said. Work is now under way on recruitment and training, building consultation rooms at schools and establishing partnerships with local healthcare providers so the program can start rolling out next year. The program will be rolled out progressively in the 100 schools around the state from term one, 2017. The Labor Government provided $43.8 million for Doctors in Secondary Schools in this year’s budget, including $25.8 million for staff and operational costs and $18 million to build consultation rooms on school grounds.
