Roads and health are the big winners in Frankston City following the release of the 2019-2020 Federal Budget this week, with significant funding being delivered to benefit the local community.
With the 2019 federal election announcement imminent, Frankston City Mayor Michael O’Reilly said Council’s strong advocacy position has resulted in a number of major funding commitments to Frankston City.
“On behalf of the Frankston City community, I’d like to thank the Federal Government and our local Member for Dunkley Chris Crewther for their interest and commitment to providing the best possible outcomes for our residents and visitors.”
“Delivering the vital road upgrades needed to get people to work, school and home quicker and regional health services for the Frankston community and broader Mornington Peninsula region build upon the existing infrastructure available to residents and visitors and will further enhance Frankston City’s reputation as the Lifestyle Capital of Victoria.”
The 2019-2020 Federal Budget will benefit Dunkley in a range of areas from roads to services, with key projects including:
A share in $1.1 billion towards road upgrades in south east Melbourne, including Lathams Road Seaford, Grant, Golf Links and Warrandyte Roads in Langwarrin South
$30 million improvements to intersections on Ballarto Road, Carrum Downs
$55 million Frankston Health Futures Hub
$10 million Paediatric emergency department at Frankston Hospital
