Mr Noonan said Labor had been working with Victoria University, Footscray City College, Footscray City Primary School and Maribyrnong Council on plans for an education precinct in Nicholson Street.
“Labor pledged $15 million to bring this education precinct to life and complement the ‘university town’ that Maribyrnong council and Victoria University are pursuing,” he said.
