Williams Road Development

Oct 15, 2021 | Electorate, News, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (15:49): (1459) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Minister Carroll. This question is a follow-up on one of my members statements earlier this week. I expressed my frustration at having the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, Minister Allan, and Minister Carroll each claim the other is responsible for the Williamsons Road development. My constituent is still awaiting a response, so I will ask the question again. Maria has expressed the concerns of residents from Hawtin Street, Templestowe, and surrounds regarding the expansion. The proposal seeks to develop an eight-lane road in the centre of a residential zone in Manningham. The residents have concerns that there has not been adequate consultation with the community regarding this development. I am told that currently neither the construction company managing the development nor the government has provided a clear indication of what is being proposed, so the information I seek is: could the government expand on the development plans for the Williamsons Road expansion and on community consultation that has taken place and the outcome of those consultations?
