With the recent announcements from the Victorian Government about how they plan on improving infrastructure, there’s so many more reasons why thousands of Victorians call the west home.

If you’ve been out west lately, you would have noticed all the infrastructure enhancements that are planned or currently underway. These improvements include:

A $2.1 billion upgrade of the Sunbury Line between Sunbury and Footscray
Investment in the highly-anticipated Melbourne Airport Rail
The new Metro Tunnel which will run between Kensington and South Yarra, easing congestion on the current City Loop
Construction of the West Gate Tunnel to provide an alternative to the West Gate Bridge
The Suburban Rail Loop providing a connection between the west, north and south-eastern suburbs
 The Geelong Fast Rail providing a faster connection between Geelong and Melbourne CBD
Removal of level crossings at 7 locations with another 6 more to go
Upgrades to 8 main western roads from Footscray to Werribee.
