The State government has completed extensive restoration works to repair the three heritage‑listed Viewbank silos, and I was pleased to attend the community’s celebration and to officiate at the rededication last Friday.
My adjournment matter is for the Treasurer, and the action I seek is that the Treasurer visit the Ivanhoe electorate to review future job and investment opportunities in the Ivanhoe electorate. In particular we could go and meet with some of those who have worked on the $140 million Hurstbridge line track duplication between Heidelberg and Rosanna, which is now complete and will see a new timetable with extra services in the morning and afternoon peaks operating from August. We could visit my old school, Viewbank College, where an $11.5 million redevelopment is almost complete in terms of a new performing arts centre which will be operating in August this year.
I rise to congratulate and to thank the newly inducted life members of what was in 1975 the West Heidelberg Community Health and Welfare Centre and today is the Banyule Community Health Service.
I rise to congratulate the local community on their perseverance, support and hard work in seeing two level crossings removed on the Hurstbridge line and the reopening of train services last Friday.
