A $2.4 million Melton hospital business case and a plan to electrify Melton’s railway line were among the key State Budget wins welcomed by Melton City Council this week.

The business case, which will determine the type and level of hospital services required, delivers on a highly anticipated Andrews Government election commitment made last year.

Meanwhile, the City’s inclusion in the $100 million Western Rail Plan will map out the proposal to electrify Melton’s rail line.  

Council is also celebrating two new schools and upgrade plans for two more, a car park extension at Melton Train Station, and the continuation of the Growing Suburbs Fund – all outlined in Monday’s budget.  

City of Melton Mayor Cr Bob Turner thanked the Andrews Government for prioritising what are some of the most urgent projects in Melbourne’s west.

“We are very grateful that the State Government has recognised both the challenges and opportunities our fast-growing communities present and has put funding where it’s needed,” Cr Turner said.

“The Melton hospital business case and the Western Rail Plan are important first steps towards two major projects that will transform everyday life for City of Melton residents.

“I’m looking forward to Council working with the State Government on its timeline for the delivery of both these plans and crucially, the timely delivery of their associated projects.

“More than 20,000 people signed a petition and joined Council’s campaign for a new hospital and I’m pleased that the process towards making this a reality will begin in the next financial year.

“Greater access to quality health services, public transport and education must match the city’s growth to secure liveability for City of Melton residents and this budget recognises that.”

In education, new primary schools will be built in Eynesbury and Rockbank North – both set to open in 2021, Exford Primary School will receive a $6.3 million upgrade, and Staughton College will receive $650,000 to plan upgrades.

“Every week, almost two classrooms of children are born in the City of Melton, so an increased school capacity is a hugely important gain for young families,” Cr Turner said.

The Budget has also confirmed the Growing Suburbs Fund annual pool of $50 million will again be available to interface councils on an application basis.

Cr Turner said he was thrilled the fund would continue.

“The fund has already helped Council provide community centres, parks, leisure centres and more. We look forward to working with the State Government to deliver more infrastructure under the Growing Suburbs Fund to meet rising demand.”

Major construction is well underway on the Ballarat Line Upgrade.

The project will deliver more services and improved reliability for Melbourne’s outer-western suburbs, Bacchus Marsh, Ballan and Ballarat. In recent months we’ve made some major progress. 

In early May, while coaches replaced trains, the largest program of works yet took place on the Ballarat Line Upgrade.

Over the course of four days 200 of our team worked night and day at sites stretching from Caroline Springs to Millbrook.

More than 15 kilometres of safety fencing has now been installed, meaning we can get on with adding a second track between Caroline Springs and Melton.

Also underway is construction on the Rockbank Station rebuild, a new rail bridge over Toolern Creek, new stabling at Maddingley and a passing loop at Millbrook.

All of which gets us closer to more frequent and reliable services.

QLD population to hit 5 million, driving housing demand

23 March 2018

Queensland’s population is projected to reach 5 million in a couple of months, according to the ABS today, and this is translating to a strong property market in the Sunshine State.

REIQ Chairman Rob Honeycombe said Queensland real estate market, and the wider Queensland economy, would benefit from such strong growth.

“Queensland grew by 81,000 people last year, and we were the most popular state for internal migration, growing more than any other state in the year to September 2017.

Overseas migration added 31,000 to Queensland’s population, which was almost 40 per cent of all new residents in the year to September 2017.

“Last year, $54 billion of Queensland residential real estate was bought and sold,” Mr Honeycombe said.

“Our popularity means demand for housing is growing and this is good news for some of our weaker markets such as the inner Brisbane apartment market and regional Queensland,” Mr Honeycombe said.

“Of course, there are pockets where housing supply is tight and this population growth is placing pressure on markets such as the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast, where prices are rising steady and vacancy rates are at historic lows.

“These areas would benefit from increased supply and, in fact, both the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast have additional levels of supply coming to market in the near future.

The ABS data revealed 12,000 of our 19,000 net internal migrants were from New South Wales.

“We have known for some time that many southerners are also moving to regional Queensland, seeking a peaceful lifestyle change.

“Downsizers and pre-retirees are selling their Sydney property to move to regional coastal towns, sucreh as Bundaberg and the Fraser Coast, to buy waterfront property and a great lifestyle,” Mr Honeycombe said.

“Queensland real estate offers great value and this is why it underpins the state’s economy. When real estate performs well, everyone benefits,” Mr Honeycombe said.

Brisbane’s A$5.4 billion Cross River Rail Project

20 Feb 2018

The Queensland Government has shortlisted companies for the contract to build Queensland’s highest priority infrastructure project, Cross River Rail.

“Cross River Rail is a transformational project that will unlock the bottleneck at the core of our transport network and increase its capacity to deliver ‘turn-up-and-go’ public transport,” Ms Trad said.

“It will also generate 7,700 jobs during construction, and stimulate decades of economic development opportunities right across South East Queensland.
