Manningham Council is calling on federal election candidates to upgrade our roads.
Increased population, major road works and congestion are changing the way we move around our city.
“As key routes are restricted arterial roads are reaching capacity,” said Mayor Cr Michelle Kleinert.
“State and Federal government have an important role to play in the upgrade of infrastructure to meet current and future needs. We are advocating for funding to complete necessary infrastructure to support our community.”
We are calling for federal funding of:
- $55 million for Templestowe Road duplication.
- Up to $10 million towards improvements for 5-ways intersection.
- $7 million for upgrade and improvements to Jumping Creek Road.
Roads and transport are a priority for our community under our Council Plan theme Liveable Places and Spaces. Our community has asked us to advocate for key transport infrastructure and improvements.
“The federal election is an opportunity for our community to let candidates know what concerns them. I am encouraging all members of our community to contact your local candidate and tell them what Manningham needs,” said Cr Kleinert.
We firmly believe that #localsknowwhatlocalsneed so #dontleavelocalcommunitybehind.
