MONASH UPGRADE THE CENTREPIECE OF TURNBULL GOVERNMENT’S VICTORIAN INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE (FED)

The Turnbull Government has committed to an additional $1.5 billion to get on with essential infrastructure to support Victoria’s regions and ensure Melbourne retains its mantle as one of the most liveable cities in the world. The centrepiece of our new commitment is a billion­dollar upgrade of the congested Monash Freeway serving the communities of South Eastern Melbourne. Other elements of the package include the final upgrades of the M80 Western Ring Road, improved freight rail connections from regional Victoria to export markets, planning work on the Melbourne Metro project and an allocation for regional roads and urban congestion projects to be mutually agreed between the two governments
