Advocating for better transport infrastructure

This consultation has concluded.

Your voice will help the City of Casey advocate to State and Federal Governments on behalf of residents for transport improvements in Casey!

The City of Casey is Victoria’s largest municipality, with a population of more than 270,000. It is also one of the state’s fastest growing - 120 people move into Casey each week, the equivalent to 6,000 people per year. The vast majority of recent growth has occurred in Narre Warren South, Berwick (South), Lynbrook - Lyndhurst, Cranbourne East, Cranbourne West and Botanic Ridge.

In mid 2010, the Victorian Government introduced new legislation to significantly expand Melbourne’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). For Casey, these changes mean an additional 5,000 hectares earmarked for residential development, which is expectated to take Casey’s population to in excess of 450,000 by 2036.

As population growth outpaces infrastructure development, Casey continues to face numerous transport challenges with pressure to keep pace with much-needed road, as well as public transport improvements.

    Public transport is a State Government responsibility.

    Over 47,000 Casey residents work in the City of Casey or Greater Dandenong but only two per cent of them use public transport to get to work. We need to have the best possible bus network to ensure our local residents can get to work to ease pressure off our ailing road network.

    The City of Casey is requesting that the State Government improves public transport infrastructure.

    Priorities include:

    • Bus services to every estate
    • Buses linking to train timetables
    • Frequent services operating every morning to late evening, seven days a week.

    Public transport is a State Government responsibility.

    To make rail travel more attractive the City of Casey is requesting that the State Government provides funding commitments to:

    • increase train services along the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines for both peak hour and off-peak services.
    • duplicate and extend the Cranbourne line, with stations at Cranbourne East and Clyde.
      Constructing a road underpass at the railway line at Aylmer Road, Lynbrook

    Cranbourne East and Clyde are significant growth areas within Casey and it is imperative that community infrastructure is in place ahead of thousands of new families moving in and before car travel patterns become established.
