Fishermans Bend - more detail emerges
Today's Herald Sun shows two proposed new precincts of Fishermens Bend: Montague and Wirraway. Wirraway is shown as wrapping around Murphy's Reserve on the Plummer St side of Williamstown Rd. It appears that Murphy's Reserve is intended as the open space resource for a future community that would include a school. There is strong support for respecting the history of the area with a puzzling suggestion for a monument of some kind to the aviation history of the area - shown on the corner of Graham St and Williamstown Rd. Puzzling because that is not where the aircraft factories were located and where we propose to construct the wetland to support the sporting fields of Murphy's Reserve.
