CRAIGIEBURN COMMUNITY TO HAVE A SAY ON 2020 SCHOOL NAME

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence announced that Craigieburn community members can vote for their preferred names for a new local school opening in 2020 and provide feedback via an online survey on Engage Vic. Craigieburn South Secondary School, which is currently known by an interim name, is set to open in Craigieburn in 2020. The Labor Government is seeking the community’s input to help find a name for the school that reflects its unique identity, inspires local pride and that makes the school easily locatable. Locally, the name Aitken Hill Secondary College has been shortlisted. Aitken Hill is a registered feature located near the new school. Aitken Hill Primary School, which opened in 2019, is also located nearby. The shortlisted names for each school were selected by a School Advisory Group, based on factors including public interest, relevance to the local area, and the consideration of local indigenous languages. The new schools opening in 2020 are part of the Labor Government’s school building boom that will see 100 new government schools open by 2026 - including six new schools in the Yuroke electorate. The Government has invested $5.6 billion in improving, upgrading and building schools to ensure that every community can access a great local school where students can achieve their best.

CONNECTING LOCALS ACROSS THE NORTH TO SHOPS, SCHOOLS AND TRAINS

The Andrews Labor Government is making it easier for locals in the growing areas of Mickleham and Kalkallo to access trains at Craigieburn Station thanks to a major investment in a new $8.9 million bus route. The route will serve residents living in new developments including the Merrifield, Cloverton and Trillium estates – making it easier for locals to get between these new communities, shops, schools, trains and other services in Craigieburn. The Government is calling for tenders to operate the new route, and further details will be announced once the procurement process has been finalised. It is anticipated the new route will run from Donnybrook station via Mickleham before terminating at Craigieburn station, which will improve connections between these new communities, shops and train services. Funded through the Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) fund, the new service will encourage locals to leave the car at home when accessing schools, shops and services in nearby Craigieburn. The new bus route comes on top of the recently released concept designs for the new 745-space car park at Craigieburn station, with the new car park to be built along the eastern edge of the Hume Highway and linked to the station by a pedestrian footpath. The project will also include new bicycle facilities, so cyclists can ride to the station and get on the train. Planning, detailed design and the approval process for the car park will take place during 2019 with construction to be completed in mid-2020. Quotes attributable to Member for Yuroke Ros Spence “We’re getting on with delivering better public transport services to get locals in the growing outer-Northern suburbs where they need to go safer and sooner.” “We know how fast our outer suburbs are growing, so we’re delivering the public transport our booming suburbs need.” Full route Mickleham route Kalkallo route
