LINKING WYNDHAM BUILDS A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY
Work is complete on the Wyndham Community Connections project thanks to the Andrews Labor Government’s $50 million Growing Suburbs Fund.
Member for Werribee Tim Pallas helped officially mark the completion of works today.
The Community Connections project expands Wyndham’s bicycle, pedestrian, and shared path network and was completed with $1.15 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund.
The project links public transport services, schools, parks, and shops, creating a more inclusive and accessible community for all residents.
The Fund helps build local facilities such as family and community centres, town centres, parks and reserves and playgrounds for the outer suburbs of Melbourne undergoing significant increases in population.
Community Connections was one of three projects funded for Wyndham City Council in last year’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
