Labor Commits $200,000 to Revitalise Sunshine Town Centre
The Andrews Labor Government today announced $200,000 to revitalise the Sunshine Town Centre, creating a strong, safe and accessible hub for pedestrians and cyclists as well as a vibrant and attractive destination for the community.
The Sunshine Town Centre upgrade is one of the latest projects to benefit from the Victorian Government’s $9.3 million Community Infrastructure Fund to support Melbourne’s fastest growing areas.
The Labor Government will contribute $200,000 to upgrade footpaths, lighting, seating, pedestrian safety measures as well as strengthen the connection between the Sunshine Station and Town Centre. More than 7,270 new residents are expected to move into Sunshine by 2021, making the area a priority for funding under the Community Infrastructure Fund.
The Community Infrastructure Fund provides grants to local councils to develop infrastructure for Melbourne’s fastest growing communities. Projects include planning and building innovative community facilities and public spaces that improve community connections and help build the economy.
