Keeping Our Promises to the St Albans Community
Almost 365 days ago, Victorians gave us the greatest gift of all, the rare chance to make a real difference in the lives of Victorian families – and we haven’t wasted a single day.
Since the Andrews Labor Government came to power, we’ve delivered and maintained budget surpluses, created more than 73,000 new jobs, doubled economic growth, and consumer confidence and business investment are all up.
We’re removing 50 of Melbourne’s most dangerous and congested level crossings, building Melbourne Metro, making Victoria the Education State, saving TAFE campuses across the state, and we’ve established Australia’s first Royal Commission into Family Violence.
The list goes on. From our first day in office, we said we would stick to our word – and we’ve done just that.
In Parliament today I spoke about how since the Andrews Labor government was elected, we have hit the ground running.
For St Albans this has meant removing the two dangerous level crossings at Main Road and Furlong Road, St Albans. This has been a long campaign, run over many decades. Now we see cranes and construction on the Main Road site and early works at Furlong Road.
We have kept our promise to deliver the first women’s and children’s hospital in the west, to be built at Sunshine Hospital. We have ended the war on our paramedics.
We have delivered the $41 million Ice Action Plan.
We have seen the biggest ever injection of funding for our schools in St Albans and also funding for breakfast clubs serving over 25 000 children across Victoria.
We have seen the first round of custody officers recruited to Sunshine police station.
We have established Australia’s first Royal Commission into Family Violence, with recommendations due early next year.
It’s been a long year of hard work and great accomplishment, but there is a lot more work to do, and we’re getting on with it.
Because we are a Government that puts people first.
