New Suburbs in Melbourne’s North

The Andrews Labor Government is building new communities in Melbourne’s north with the services and modern  infrastructure families deserve. Minister for Planning Richard Wynne today joined Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green and Member for Yuroke Ros Spence to unveil Melbourne’s latest suburbs, Donnybrook and Woodstock. Donnybrook and Woodstock will be developed over a 30-year period, eventually becoming a home for 17,000 dwellings. The Labor Government is ensuring developers who profit from the building of new suburbs give back significant funds to deliver important community services and facilities new residents and families need. The Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) paid by developers will be $345 million. It will go towards land acquisition for the future Hayes Hill Primary School, further upgrades in and around Donnybrook Station, land for a new station at Lockerbie, a future CFA Station and Ambulance Station.   In this year’s Victorian Budget the Andrews Labor Government committed $20 million to upgrade the Donnybrook and Wallan train stations and have added extra services and improved timetabling. Matthew Guy and the former Liberal Government planned and built new suburbs the wrong way.  Refusing to release funding from the GAIC and failing to build much needed community infrastructure in suburbs that were experiencing a population boom.  The Andrews Labor Government has already committed more than $100 million towards future projects in growth suburbs, with more investments in the pipeline. Plans for five local town centres, five convenience centres, six government schools, four non-government schools and 46 hectares of parkland are also included. Supply is a cornerstone of housing affordability, which is why the Government is rezoning 100,000 lots of land in key growth areas in two years, and speeding up the time it takes for land to be shovel-ready. The Government is making it easier for Victorians to buy their first home, with thousands of Victorian first home buyers benefitting from generous stamp duty cuts that came into force on July 1. The Government is also making renting fair through a major package of reforms that give tenants more rights, helps them stay on longer leases, makes bond smaller and fairer, and cracks down on dodgy landlords. Quotes attributable to Minister for Planning Richard Wynne “Donnybrook and Woodstock will be great places to live and raise a family, with nearby jobs for locals and affordable homes that help young Victorians achieve their dreams of homeownership.” Quotes attributable to Member for Yuroke Ros Spence “It’s only fair that developers give back to the communities they are building. We’ve struck a deal that ensures they pay their fair share for schools, parks and services that communities deserve.” Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “Labor is investing over $1 billion in services and infrastructure in Mernda and Doreen now because the former Liberal Government failed to invest during massive population growth.  We will ensure the Donnybrook and Woodstock communities come complete with schools, parks, playgrounds and services that will make these new northern Melbourne suburbs a superb place to live.”

Yan Yean Road Upgrade One Step Closer

The Andrews Labor Government has taken a major step towards reducing travel times and improving safety on Yan Yean Road in Plenty. Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Luke Donnellan, today announced BMD Constructions Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract to design and build the 3.9km upgrade. Yan Yean Road will be widened from two to four lanes, between Diamond Creek Road to Kurrak Road and upgrades to the River Avenue, Kurrak Road and Diamond Creek Road intersections will also be delivered. The upgrade will include a continuous centre median to prevent head-on crashes, straightening the road to improve driver visibility and new service roads to allow residents to safely access their properties. There will also be new off-road cycling and pedestrian paths along the length of the uprade. Yan Yean Road currently carries more than 23,000 vehicles per day. More than 45 recorded crashes have occurred on Yan Yean Road since 2010, resulting in one fatality and eight serious injuries. Construction will start later this year. Quotes attributable to Minister for Roads, Luke Donnellan “We’re getting on with the job of fixing Yan Yean Road for the thousands of people across the outer northern suburbs that rely on it every day.” “This vital upgrade will improve safety and reduce congestion so that people can spend less time stuck in traffic and more time at home.” Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green “Yan Yean Road is a vital arterial for our community – that’s why we’re investing in this important upgrade so that people can get to where they need to be safer and sooner.” “With the contract now awarded, I look forward to seeing work begin on the Yan Yean Road Upgrade so drivers can benefit from the travel time savings that are desperately needed.”
