Residents and visitors will be able to travel throughout Frankston City with ease thanks to a recent $850 million commitment from the Federal Opposition towards road upgrades in Melbourne’s south east if elected.
The funding promise includes upgrades to Lathams Road in Seaford with a bridge over Peninsula Link, Golf Links and Grant Roads in Langwarrin South and the six way roundabout at Golf Links, Grant, Warrandyte and Baxter-Tooradin Roads.
“This is welcome news for commuters travelling along these roads, making the journey for hundreds of people safer and quicker,” said Frankston City Mayor Michael O’Reilly.
“Improvements at the Golf Links Road roundabout will facilitate further investment and job creation at the Ingham’s Processing Plant in Somerville, which is a major employer of Frankston City residents and has been something for which Council, in partnership with Ingham Enterprises and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has been advocating strongly.”
“I’d like to thank our Labor Candidate for Dunkley Peta Murphy and Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten for investing in our community’s safety and journey through these vital road upgrades.”
