MELTON TOWN CENTRE RECEIVES MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR RENOVATIONS

Melton’s $13.1 million town centre redevelopment is now complete with a new tree-lined boulevard, a redeveloped amphitheatre and visitor centre.

Liberal Senator for Victoria, Jane Hume, who attended today’s official opening, said the redevelopment has transformed the town centre into a thriving and attractive precinct.

“With clear and accessible pathways, locals and visitors will love walking up the tree-lined promenade that connects High Street to the Melton Library and Learning Hub,” Senator Hume said.

“It’s an asset the entire community can take pride in. The renovated amphitheatre and visitor information centre, creates people-focused spaces that will help attract locals and visitors of all ages and abilities.”

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the project is an investment in the future of Melton.  

“This project, which supported 50 jobs during construction and creates a further five ongoing local jobs, will help attract locals and visitors to the centre, giving the region’s economy a major boost,” Mr McCormack said.

Melton City Mayor Bob Turner said the renovations have brought the Melton Town Centre to life.

“These upgrades have created a vibrant and safe space for traders, locals and visitors to enjoy,” Cr Turner said.

The $13.1 million project was jointly funded with the Federal Liberal and Nationals Government investing $5.54 million, the Victorian Government $3.7 million and the City of Melton $3.85 million.
