GETTING ON WITH MELBOURNE’S MISSING ROAD LINK

Procurement for Victoria’s biggest ever transport project, the North East Link, will start within the first 100 days of a re-elected Andrews Labor Government. Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green joined Premier Daniel Andrews and Roads Minister Luke Donnellan to announce fast-tracked planning for the project. The Victorian Budget 2018/19 will provide $110 million to fast track detailed planning and design works so that the search for a builder to construct the massive project can start immediately after the election. The $16.5 billion project will slash congestion across Melbourne’s north east, take thousands of trucks off local roads and create more than 10,000 new jobs. Travel times between Melbourne’s north and south will be cut by up to 30 minutes in each direction. When the road opens, it will take up to 15,000 trucks off local streets each day, and more than 9,000 vehicles off traffic hotspots like Rosanna Road, Lower Plenty Road and Fitzsimons Lane. Keeping local roads for local people is a priority, so residents have better access to railway stations, shops and services. This year’s budget will fund planning works and the over-arching blueprint which will guide construction. Planning studies and community consultation are well underway following the announcement of a project corridor last year. Locals will be the first to see further design work on the project within weeks, with the full reference design to be released later this year. The project design will be refined to include public feedback and to make sure the most efficient plans are in place before the project is put to market and a builder chosen. For more information about the project, visit northeastlink.gov.au Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “North East Link will slash congestion across the north east and connect our community to Melbourne’s south and east.” “Whether it’s North East Link, the Yan Yean Road Upgrade, Mernda Rail or the duplication of the Hurstbridge line – only Labor is investing in the transport infrastructure our community needs.”

Planning ahead for female sports in Hurstbridge

Funding has been secured to develop plans for female friendly facilities at Ben Frilay Oval in Hurstbridge. Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green, visited the oval today to announce the Andrews Government will provide $10,000 to the Hurstbridge Football and Netball Club for infrastructure planning for a new or refurbished pavilion. “Our Government is committed to getting Victorian’s active and involved by funding better sports facilities that more people can use,” Ms Green said. Ben Frilay oval is home to Hurstbridge Football and Netball Club. The football club has a long history in Hurstbridge dating back 104 years. The netballers joined the club a few years ago and have been steadily building their numbers. Ms Green said the old pavilion at the reserve lacks decent facilities for female players, which in turn makes it hard for the club to attract and retain female players. “For too long, Hurstbridge has been held back by an ageing pavilion and I’m really delighted the Andrews Government is helping the club to plan for upgraded facilities in the future,” Ms Green said. “Revamped facilities will help the club cater for growing interest from women and girls, and give all players and administrators a modern clean safe and accessible environment,” she said. “The Andrews Government is proudly investing in grassroots sports so we can all enjoy healthier and more active lifestyles,” Ms Green said. A master plan for the oval will include the development of female friendly facilities accommodating female players and umpires.   Media contact: Craig Wilson | 0428-525-909 | craig.wilson@parliament.vic.gov.au

Work underway on Yarrambat Park Primary School

Preparation work has officially commenced on the site of the new Yarrambat Park Primary School in Doreen. Labor Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green, today turned the first sod at the Patience Avenue site, with major works to commence over coming weeks. The new school was designed in consultation with local residents, who got the opportunity to have their say during community engagement held during the design process. The $25 million Yarrambat Park Primary School is one of six new growth area schools being delivered across Melbourne as part of a multi-school tender with Kane Constructions. The company has been engaged by the Andrews Government to also construct Truganina East P-9, Sanctuary Lakes South P-9 (Point Cook), Burnside Primary, Aitkin Hill Primary (Craigieburn) and Pakenham North East Primary. Ms Green said she was delighted Yarrambat Park Primary School would soon be a reality. “Yarrambat Park Primary School will be more than just a great new local school when it opens next year, it will be a hub that provides great services and facilities that everyone in the Doreen community can be proud of,” Ms Green said. “I speak regularly with local parents and I know how excited they are about a new, purpose build school here in Doreen,” she said. The Labor Government is investing more than $2.5 billion to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state. This school building boom has delivered more than 1,200 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians.     Media contact Craig Wilson 0428-525-909 | craig.wilson@parliament.vic.gov.au
