MAKING ROADS SAFER FOR ALL ROAD USERS IN THE NORTH-WEST
A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will make roads in Melbourne’s north-west safer for everyone with a new bike path from Kings Road in Keilor North through to Thompsons Road.
More Victorians are choosing to leave the car at home and walk or cycle instead, improving their health and helping cut traffic congestion.
A re-elected Labor Government will invest $2.7 million to make it safer for people cycling between Kings Road in Keilor North through to Thompsons Road, connecting this much used bike path.
The Andrews Labor Government has been making our roads safer for all users by removing dangerous and congested level crossings, upgrading roads, and building new bike lanes and pedestrian crossings with a $100 million Active Transport Fund.
This includes the Sunbury Road widening and upgrade as part of the Labor Government’s Suburban Roads Upgrade, the Gap and Horne Street intersection upgrade and the new path from Jackson’s Hill to the Sunbury Town Centre.
There’s more to do and only a re-elected Labor Government will continue to make our roads safer for everyone in Melbourne’s north-west.
While the Liberals cut funding for hospitals and schools, and closed TAFE campuses – only Labor will invest in the projects our community really needs.
