The Allan Labor Government is investing in a suite of new infrastructure projects in Melton to ensure more Victorian families have access to essential services close to home. 

Melton will benefit from more than $39 million worth of projects funded through the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) fund – supporting Victorian families in our fastest growing suburbs.

Projects include:

  • $35 million towards a new school in Cobblebank
  • $4 million to construct a shared user path on the proposed new Ferris Road bridge over the rail corridor.

The Labor Government is investing a total of $400 million into 37 infrastructure projects across Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Whittlesea and Wyndham local government areas through the GAIC fund.

These projects complement the more than $685 million worth of initiatives already delivered across Melbourne’s growth areas through the GAIC fund – including ambulance sites, parks, schools and public transport.

The GAIC fund is a one-off contribution payable by landowners developing land that has been zoned for urban use and development in the Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Whittlesea and Wyndham local government areas.

The fund supports the Labor Government’s landmark Housing Statement by delivering key transport, health, community and education infrastructure to ensure communities in growing suburbs have access to the services they need, close to where they live.
