Why do we need a campaign?
• State Government funding to provide essential infrastructure has not kept pace with Casey’s population growth
• Casey is Victoria's largest municipality with over 120 people moving in each week and over 450,000 people expected to call Casey home by 2036
• Casey has a road backlog of $1.3 billion (Auditor General’s Report, 2013)
• Casey has a pronounced under-provision of public transport services with bus services below what are considered Minimum Service Levels
• Over 76 per cent of Casey’s working population travel outside of the municipality for work
• There is limited infrastructure for arts and cultural participation in Casey
• Casey has been experiencing significantly high rates of mental health issues among young people, and an associated high rate of suicide
What is Council advocating for?
Council is seeking funding commitments for:
• Bus service improvements
• Hallam Road duplication/ South Gippsland Highway intersection upgrade
• Thompsons Road duplication/ Western Port Highway intersection upgrade
• Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road duplication (stage two)
