Standing up for Scullin

When he’s not in Canberra Andrew spends much of his time out and about in the Scullin electorate. From Lalor and Thomastown to Diamond Creek and Hurstbridge, Andrew is proud to have a record of supporting and delivering on outcomes for the Scullin community.

 

O’Herns Rd upgrade

Andrew, together with state MPs and local council colleagues, strongly campaigned for a Federal Government commitment for this essential infrastructure project. $25.8 million of the $81 million spent on the project comes from the Federal Government due to our community’s campaigning efforts.

Works will include:

  • replacing the roundabout at the O’Herns Rd and High St intersection with traffic lights
  • duplicating O’Herns Rd to four lanes through to the Hume Fwy
  • building a new interchange between the Hume Fwy and and O’Herns, as well as adding merging lanes
