Budget approval means projects can proceed

The Council budget for 2010/2011 has now been adopted. That means that some long awaited projects have now got commitment to go ahead.
  • Top of my list, as it is with many people, is making safety improvements to the Bay/Liardet intersection [$150,000].

  • $400,000 has been set aside to improve the streetscape of Rouse St, west of Bay St

  • $30,000 has been allocated for traffic calming in Bridge St, west of the Railway line

  • raised pavements will be installed at the intersection of Clarke and Poolman Sts to make it safer for children to cross to Port Melbourne Primary

Consultation will occur in due course on all these projects now the funding has been secured.

Please refer to more detailed posts between 10th and 15th May 2010 on Port Melbourne initiatives in the Port Phillip Council budget.
