New Trail For Mount Holden
A new walking trail will be built in Sunbury thanks to support from the Andrews Labor Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull announced Hume City Council will receive $500,000 to build a new loop trail around Mount Holden in Sunbury from the Growing Suburbs Fund.
The Growing Suburbs Fund helps Melbourne’s rapidly developing interface and peri-urban councils deliver high-quality facilities for their communities.
The construction of a 2.5km loop trail around Mount Holden will give people the opportunity to exercise and receive the health and wellbeing benefits of walking in nature.
The project will also include signage to provide the community with the opportunity to learn about the environmental and cultural significance of the site.
First launched in 2015, the Growing Suburbs Fund has now invested more than $29 million to make twenty-nine projects possible across Hume, including the new community pavilion at the Bulla Village Tennis Club and the laneway upgrades in the Sunbury town centre.
Since its establishment in 2015, the Growing Suburbs Fund has facilitated $913.2 million in local infrastructure, created more than 8,880 jobs and supported 253 projects across Melbourne’s fastest-growing areas.
