CONSTITUENCY QUESTION – Westall Road Extension

Nov 13, 2019 | Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:44): My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and regards the Westall Road extension in Monash. At a meeting with Monash council last month they expressed ongoing frustrations and delays with these road extensions. In 2014 VicRoads received funding for a business case for this road and there has been much public consultation on the design options up until the end of 2017. Then silence. The Westall Road extension will follow an existing road reserve from the intersection of Westall Road and Princes Highway to the Monash Freeway. It will greatly improve traffic flow in the area, moving trucks and cars off Blackburn, Springvale and Clayton roads, and freeing up congestion. Monash council believes the project is ready to go. So I ask the minister: when will construction of the Westall Road extension begin?
