Council’s Fix the Calder campaign accelerates

Brimbank Council’s Fix the Calder campaign is gaining momentum.

The State Government’s Major Roads Projects Victoria Authority has begun a planning study to investigate improvement options at the intersection of the Calder Freeway and Calder Park Drive.

The results of the study will inform a business case for the project.

The study includes traffic modelling, and speaking with the Level Crossing Removal Authority about the recently announced grade separation at Calder Park Drive.

The study is a great step forward in Council’s push to make the freeway safer and reduce traffic congestion.

“Actions likes these bring us one step closer to being able to deliver safer road connections for everyone travelling on the Calder,” Brimbank Mayor Cr Ranka Rasic says.

The Calder Freeway is one of Victoria’s most dangerous roads and safety improvements are urgently needed.

Additionally, a report by Infrastructure Australia shows the freeway will be Melbourne’s second-most congested road by 2031.

Funding commitments from both State and Federal governments are a welcome step forward. However, funding in future budgets is crucial to make these improvements.

“I would like to call on everyone to support Brimbank’s petition and let’s work together to Fix the Calder − make it safe, get it moving and do it now,” Cr Rasic says.
