$700,000 infrastructure project earmarked for regional Victoria

June 29, 2012

Making the choice to move to a regional area can be difficult, with a multitude of considerations to keep in mind.

Access to amenities, including health and community services, as well as public transport options are factors to consider.

For Victorians planning to purchase rural property, Frankston might be an attractive option with yesterday's (June 28) announcement of a $700,000 infrastructure project earmarked for the region.

The Nepean Highway Precinct project will fund major upgrades to the road stretch, including the improvement of pedestrian and cyclist amenities - boosting access between Frankston beach and the town centre.

The project will also ease the expected increase of traffic flow caused by the new Peninsula Link due to open in 2013.

The 27 km long Peninsula Link will reduce motorists’ travelling times between Mount Martha and Carrum Downs by up to 40 minutes during peak hour traffic.

Local member for Frankston Geoff Shaw said the vital infrastructure project scheduled for the Nepean Highway would benefit cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.

He commented: "This is much needed infrastructure investment for central Frankston and will go a long way to further improve the already valued streetscape and amenity of the area."
