Jobs and Opportunity for Broadmeadows:

Posted By , .

Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas will be the keynote speaker at an Economic and Cultural Development Summit to discuss jobs, education and transport in Broadmeadows. The Treasurer has made a commitment to help get Victoria back to work and help create 100,000 new jobs throughout the state, an initiative greatly welcomed by Broadmeadows MP Frank McGuire.

In his first budget, Mr Pallas has also committed $273 million to widen Citylink and the Tullamarine Freeway. Mr McGuire had also called for the upgrade to the Tullamarine Freeway to help increase jobs and productivity in Melbourne’s North.

Victoria’s single biggest funding boost for education will also benefit families in Broadmeadows, along with the Andrews’ Government commitment to especially help students in low income families.

Mr McGuire welcomed the Labor Government’s commitment to a $508 million Premier’s Jobs and Investment Panel, designed to create more high-skilled, high wage jobs along with the $200 million Future Industries Fund which includes investment in medical research. “As Parliamentary Secretary for Medical Research I will be working with the Premier and Treasurer on how we can help create new businesses and jobs in this world class sector of the Victorian economy.”

“I want Broadmeadows to eventually be remembered for the rise of companies like CSL not the demise of Ford,” Mr McGuire said. “The Future Industries Fund will have a major influence on creating jobs.”

Hume residents will also benefit from a new $50 million Interface Council’s Infrastructure Fund to support councils and communities on the edge of Melbourne.

Mr McGuire said this fund fulfilled the Labor Government’s promise provide money to invest in Melbourne’s outer suburbs.

He said residents in the Hume area would benefit from the fund, which could be used for multipurpose facilities, community centres, playgrounds or other community spaces.

The Interface Fund – the first of its kind – is to support suburbs which will host the highest proportion of Victoria’s population growth during coming decades. Applications will be called for soon.
