The Allan Labor Government is investing in a suite of new infrastructure projects in Werribee to ensure more families have access to essential services close to home.

Werribee will benefit from nearly $130 million worth of projects funded through the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) fund – supporting Victorian families in our fastest growing suburbs.

Projects include:

  • $60 million to deliver a critical road link for the Ison Road Overpass.
  • More than $29 million for a proposed government school site identified in the Ballan Road Precinct Structure Plan.
  • $8 million to construct a new Ambulance Victoria branch.
  • More than $12 million to acquire and construct a Type B/C Victorian State Emergency Service facility in Wyndham Vale.
  • More than $21 million for a new bus connection between Harpley Estate and Cornerstone Estate communities, and Wyndham Vale Station.

The Labor Government is investing a total of $400 million into 37 infrastructure projects across Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Whittlesea and Wyndham local government areas through the GAIC fund.

These projects complement the more than $685 million worth of initiatives already delivered across Melbourne’s growth areas through the GAIC fund – including ambulance sites, parks, schools and public transport.

The GAIC fund is a one-off contribution payable by landowners developing land that has been zoned for urban use and development in the Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Whittlesea and Wyndham local government areas.

The fund supports the Labor Government’s landmark Housing Statement by delivering key transport, health, community and education infrastructure to ensure communities in growing suburbs have access to the services they need, close to where they live.

We know more Victorians want to live close to transport, schools and essential services – and this investment will deliver exactly the kind of infrastructure Victorian families need in our fastest growing suburbs.”
