Vietnam Veterans

August 22, 2018

I want to pay my respects to Vietnam veterans and to the commemorative service at the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital. A shout‑out to veteran volunteers and veterans themselves, including Jeff Freeman; our RSL presidents at Greensborough and Ivanhoe, Lee Webb and John Beezley; and to the Minister for Veterans for attending an event at the repatriation hospital on Wednesday to announce further support for veterans. Lest we forget.

I was very pleased to join the Premier, the Deputy Premier, the Minister for Training and Skills and the member for Eltham at the opening of the Banyule‑Nillumbik Tech School, a $10 million project to invest in our young people. Some 14 000 students from 19 secondary schools across the Banyule and Nillumbik local government areas will benefit from that tech school. The Premier also announced the next 10 free TAFE courses for high‑demand industries.

Ivanhoe electorate roads

Pedestrians and local residents will be safer with four speed and red‑light cameras to be installed at Rosanna Road intersections by the end of the year, funded by the Andrews Labor government. I am pleased to announce today that contracts for the new cameras have been signed with Sensys Gatso Australia. That is a $900 000 project.
