Andrews Government First Budget Delivers for Oakleigh Electorate
The first Andrews Government Victorian Budget has delivered substantially for the electorate of Oakleigh – already fulfilling many election commitments.
This budget is a fantastic example of a Government delivering on commitments and doing so in an economically responsible way.
Locally, the Andrews Government Budget will provide:
Amsleigh Park Primary will be able to commence their school modernisation with a commitment of $5.7 million.
Huntingdale Bus Interchange will be built at Huntingdale Train Station and Car parks will be improved – with $7.6 million in funding.
A new $3.8 million Helipad will be built at Monash Hospital in Clayton which will ensure both children and adult patients can access emergency services quickly.
$16.2 million will be delivered to expand the Moorabbin Hospital, with the addition of a Magnetic Resonance Imager (MRI) and Computerised Tomography (CT) machine, and 11 new outpatient specialist consulting suites.
$950,000 to start the planning works at Glen Eira College, with future funding to complete the $9.5 million project delivered in coming budgets.
A $7.1 million commitment to Monash Hospital in Clayton for essential infrastructure works.
$15 million to kick off the planning and works for Australia’s first specialised Heart Hospital to be located at Monash University.
A continuation of funding for the redevelopment of the Oakleigh Centre.
And a confirmed commitment to remove all level crossings in the Oakleigh electorate in the next 4 years and those nearby, including Grange and Koornang Roads in Carnegie, Murrumbeena Road in Murrumbeena, Poath Road in Hughesdale, Clayton and Centre Roads in Clayton and North Road in Ormond.
