INVESTMENT: $1.39 million
We’ve delivered a brand new, state of the art learning space for Bayswater Primary School, to ensure students have the very best facilities they deserve to start their lifelong learning.
INVESTMENT: $81.6 million
STAGE: Planning Underway
Delivering a new, 120-bed aged care facility in Wantirna so seniors who have spent their whole lives giving to our area can get the best care in the community they love.
INVESTMENT: $500,000 for planning
As the Member for Bayswater, education is my top priority. So a root-and-branch review lead by Bayswater locals, working with all Bayswater schools for all Bayswater students will deliver better education outcomes – as well as a roadmap for future investments.
INVESTMENT: Over $10 million
STAGE: Planning for both projects Underway
Our emergency service volunteers step forward when we need them most – in any situation. So delivering two new buildings – for The Basin CFA brigade and for the Knox SES Unit – was the least we can do to say thank you. It’ll mean quicker responses, appropriate facilities and a real sense of pride for the whole community.
INVESTMENT: $15.8 billion
STAGE: Works Underway
It’s the missing link in our freeway network that Melbourne has needed ever since we’ve had a Melway. And the Andrews Government is getting on with delivering it. It’ll mean improved travel times to the city – up to 11 minutes – as well as faster travel speeds, to get you home sooner.
INVESTMENT: $1.32 million
STAGE: Construction Imminent
Building on the $8 million investment delivered by the Andrews Government for a new competition grade gym and school buildnings, I have been able to secure funding for brand new ovals and landscaping for Boronia Heights, with construction ready to get underway.
INVESTMENT: Nearly $2 million
STAGE: Works underway
In a package of works being delivered, it’ll see a brand new synthetic oval, new footpaths, a new carpark and an all-abilities playground delivered at The Basin PS. Giving local students the best in outdoor activity and play-based learning will be a real win for the community.
Delivering for local sports clubs is important – keeping people engaged, active and healthy. And the brand new female friendly sports pavilion at the Colchester Reserve will mean that women and girls participating in sport have the space they deserve to change and prepare for games.
I was proud to deliver funding to build a brand new senior building at St. B’s, up in The Basin. The school has ambitious plans to grow and I’m so pleased to see this become a reality.
The Knox Central Library, in Knox City, has outgrown it’s current premises, so I am proud to be working with Knox Council to ensure that a brand new one is delivered for locals to enjoy and continued to be loved for decades to come.
INVESTMENT: $1.6 million
This dangerous and difficult to navigate intersection has been in need of an upgrade for years – it’s a rural intersection in suburban Melbourne – and I’ve heard of many near-misses. I’m glad that this is being changed for the better making it safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike.
INVESTMENT: $1.7 million
We all know how tired the Heathmont Railway Station is looking – and I heard you loud and clear. So I’m proud to have been able to secure $1.7 million to upgrade and refresh Heathmont Station, making it more amenable and safer for local commuters.
This $500,000 will deliver a shovel ready project which will create jobs, support local business. Work has already begun with Knox Council on this and they're ready to help deliver a great project to kick-start change in this community.
This one is HUGE. The Andrews Government is committing $5,000,000 to deliver a new-state-of-the-art Knox Regional Netball Centre which helps to lock this project in, get it done and create local jobs!
