A Shorten Labor Government will deliver for Labor’s heartland of Melbourne’s west – with a $50 million commitment for the Wyndham West Link.
This election will be a choice between a united Shorten Labor Government which will build the transport infrastructure we need, or more of the Liberals’ cuts and chaos. We need real change, because more of the same isn’t good enough.
The link will boost productivity and ease congestion in Wyndham, Melbourne’s Outer Western growth corridor.
Once completed, this project will deliver a continuous road link from Tarneit to Wyndham Vale and Manor Lakes, Wyndham Vale and Werribee to the Princes Freeway.
An elected Shorten Labor Government will consult with local and state governments to complete and duplicate both ends of Armstrong Road to link Tarneit to the Freeway through Wyndham Vale and Werribee.
The first stage of the project will link Armstrong and Ison Roads between Blackforest Road and the Princes Freeway with a bridge over the railway lines.
The link between Sayers Road and Armstrong Road will be completed in the second stage of the project with a bridge over the Werribee River.
On completion, this vital piece of congestion-busting infrastructure will ease traffic on Ballan Road and Heaths Road and make it easier for locals to travel to work and move around our city.
“Labor understands that in order to ease congestion, reduce travel times and meet the growing needs of the Wyndham region, we need to invest in vital infrastructure such as the Wyndham West Link,” said Ms Ryan.
“When last in Government, Federal Labor delivered the Regional Rail Link which provides access from the western and northern parts of Wyndham City to the Melbourne CBD. Today’s commitment to complete the road component of the Wyndham transport corridor builds on Labor’s strong record of delivering for our region.”
While Labor has a proud record of investment, over the past 6 years of Government, the Liberals have failed to invest an additional cent in our local road infrastructure.
A Shorten Labor Government can afford to give Victoria its fair share of infrastructure funding because we are closing the Liberals’ tax loopholes for the top end of town.
End the cuts and chaos. Vote for change. Vote for Labor.
