The Victorian State Budget has addressed a number of infrastructure needs we have highlighted in our Northern Horizons infrastructure document and also the North West Melbourne City Deal proposal:

  • $101m to deliver world-class facilities for Matildas, Football Victoria and Rugby Centre of Excellence at La Trobe University (part of the $5 billion La Trobe University Redevelopment)
  • $60m for Kangan Institute redevelopment at Broadmeadows (part of Broadmeadows Revitalisation)
  • New local mental health services at Whittlesea and new mental health beds at Thomas Embling Hospital, Fairfield
  • Funding for community hospitals in Craigieburn, Eltham, Mernda and Sunbury
  • New schools in areas of high population growth
  • emergency department paediatric investment at Northern Health
  • investment in outer North road network
  • Creative Neighbourhoods program funding for the Brunswick Design District

We look forward to working with the Victorian Government to deliver further much-needed infrastructure for Melbourne’s North.
