Buninyong electorate roads

Mr Howard — Yesterday I again visited Bacchus Marsh to turn the first sod on the $2.4 million upgrade of the Gisborne Road and Holts Lane interchange. Over 5000 vehicles per day use this intersection, and these works will provide extra lanes to increase capacity, including a dedicated lane to enable traffic to access the Western Freeway. These works add to the Halletts Way upgrade, which is progressing well, adding new ramps to allow drivers to enter and exit the Western Freeway to provide quicker access to and from Melbourne. With Bacchus Marsh’s population expected to more than double by 2041, the Andrews Labor government is continuing to invest in this area.
