The Federal Member for Aston, Hon Alan Tudge MP, has announced an election commitment to provide $150,000 of federal funding to construct a new right hand turning lane on Bergins Road in Rowville.
There is currently no turning lane into the Waverley Country Club on Bergins Rd outbound from Stud Road.
The new turning lane would see 170 metres of new road widening words along Bergins Rd to install the new turning lane into the Waverley Country Club, plus new line marking and drainage words.
“Bergins Rd only has one lane outbound, leading to traffic banking up whenever a car is stopped waiting to turn into the Country Club,” said Mr Tudge.
“If re-elected, I will ensure a dedicated right hand turn lane is built on Bergins Rd into the Waverley Country Club.”
“This will help to directly ease traffic on Bergins Rd and improve safety on this busy Rowville road.”
“This is a practical commitment that is part of my campaign to deliver better roads and infrastructure for Knox.”
“I look forward to working with Knox Council to deliver the new turning lane as soon as possible,” said Mr Tudge.
The Turnbull Government is investing a total of $7.6 billion in Victorian infrastructure. In
addition, the Turnbull Government remains committed to the East West Link and will provide $3 billion to the first Victorian Government willing to build this vital project.
This Victorian investment includes a $1.5 billion infrastructure plan with $500 million towards the Monash Freeway, $350 million for the M80 Ring Road, and $240 million for the Murray Basin Freight Rail, conditional on the Victorian Government matching this funding dollar for dollar.
In addition, the Turnbull Government has committed $857.2 million for Melbourne Metro.
The Turnbull Government is spending a record $50 billion on land transport infrastructure as part of our carefully structured economic plan to provide jobs and growth and a secure future for Australian families.
