Over the past few months, I have been able to announce some major projects for the residents of the outer east, Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges which build on the many projects already completed.
Guaranteed federal funding will ensure the following projects will soon get underway:
a new Youth Health hub, including mental health services and a Headspace based in Lilydale.
duplication of the Maroondah Hwy in Coldstream with traffic lights at Killara Rd/Station St and the North/South Gateway intersections.
New pavilions and upgrades of sporting facilities in Wandin North, Mt Evelyn, Chirnside Park and Mooroolbark.
funding for local organisations to deliver much needed community services and;
funding to help boost tourism and more local jobs via the Yarra Valley Trail, Warburton Mountain Bike project, Warburton Community Recreation Precinct and Ridge Walk.
As part of the 2019 Federal election campaign, I have made a number of election commitments.
I look forward to your support at the upcoming election and being able to deliver these exciting projects for our community, as part of a re-elected Morrison Government:
