MORE SUPPORT FOR YARRAVILLE SPECIAL DEVELOPMENT SCHOOL

The Yarraville Special Development School is one of 93 schools across Victoria sharing in $15 million to build all-access play areas, sensory gardens and outdoor learning areas to support students with disabilities and additional needs, under the latest rounds of the Andrews Labor Government’s $30 million Inclusive Schools Fund. Member for Williamstown, Wade Noonan said the Yarraville Special Development School is receiving $177,800 to create an outdoor workspace and work-skills curriculum. This will provide all senior students, including those with complex needs, with the support they require to develop to the best of their abilities. The fund is helping government schools better support the social and education needs of young people with a disability. The Inclusive Schools Fund is helping government schools better support the social and educational needs of young people with a disability. Since it was established by the Labor Government in 2015, nearly 90 creative projects to build inclusive play spaces, outdoor learning areas, sensory gardens and calm spaces have been delivered. The Inclusive Schools Fund is part of the Government’s Special Needs Plan for Victorian Schools, which is ensuring that students with disabilities get the same opportunities as other students. Inclusive education is about ensuring that all students, regardless of disabilities or other differences, are able to fully participate, learn, develop and succeed in Victorian government schools. ​ More information about these projects is available at: www.schoolbuildings.vic.gov.au. Quotes attributable to Minister for Education James Merlino “As we build the Education State, we’re continuing to invest in schools to ensure students of all abilities can access a great education – no matter their circumstances.” “These projects are all about giving our primary schools the equipment and infrastructure they need to inspire a lifelong passion for learning for all of their students and to show that disability isn’t a barrier to learning and achieving.” Quotes attributable to Wade Noonan MP “I couldn’t be happier to end my political career by announcing an investment in the Yarraville Special Development School.” “Having visited the school on a number of occasions over many years, I know how much this additional funding means to them. I want to congratulate all the staff and teachers for the wonderful work they do, and thank them for their commitment and dedication to building a first class learning environment.”

MAKING PLAYGROUNDS MORE INCLUSIVE FOR ALL KINDER KIDS

Williamstown kids of all abilities will find learning and playing easier while at kinder, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government. Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos and Member for Williamstown Wade Noonan have announced 42 kinders will benefit from the latest round of the Inclusive Kindergartens Facilities Program. The program helps kinders become more accessible and inclusive for kids of all abilities by upgrading their buildings or playgrounds or to buy things like adjustable desks and chairs, moveable wheelchair ramps and soft padding for outdoor areas. So far, a total 258 grants worth $6.4 million have been distributed to dozens of Victorian kinders. Home Road Kindergarten is one of the lucky kinders and will be getting $122,000 to promote, foster, and embrace inclusion by building a new sensory garden and upgrading their playground. The Labor Government has invested a record $123.6 million to build, expand and improve early years infrastructure across Victoria to ensure local families can continue to access great local kindergartens. It has led to an additional 8,250 kindergarten places for 3- and 4-year-olds, as well as hundreds of new and revamped early learning facilities and playgroups since 2014. It builds on the Government’s landmark $202.1 million Education State Early Childhood Reform Plan, which recognises the importance of giving families support in early childhood so kids are ready for kinder, ready for school and ready for life. Quotes attributable to Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos “No child should be left behind – we’re making kinders and playgrounds more accessible for kids of all abilities.” “We’re improving kindergarten infrastructure across the state so that children of all abilities can make the most out of their time at kinder.” Quotes attributable to Member for Williamstown Wade Noonan “Building the Education State starts with the early years – and families right across Victoria and here in Williamstown will get to reap the benefits of this funding.”

Adjournment: Williamstown Football Club

I wish to raise a matter for the Minister for Sport; in fact it is similar to the matter raised by the member for Bentleigh. The action I seek from the minister is for him to consider favourably the application made by the Williamstown Football Club for a community sports infrastructure loan. The Williamstown Football Club has been part of the Hobsons Bay community for a very long time; in fact its inception in 1864 makes it one of the oldest sporting clubs in the country. Notably the club fielded their first women's team in this year's VFLW competition, the first standalone VFL club to do so. This initiative is obviously very exciting for the development of women's football in Melbourne's west, and I think it will pave the way for a generation of young girls and women to play football at the highest level without ever needing to leave our region in the west. Beyond the club's VFLW endeavours, it plays a very significant role in the community. Not only does the club support numerous grassroots clubs but it also features prominently in the development of budding young footballers at our local schools. For example, the club delivers an accelerated football program at both Williamstown High School and Bayside College. With the success of women's football and the introduction of the club's VFLW side it has become apparent that facilities at the Point Gellibrand ground are no longer fit for purpose. What that means in a practical sense is that when the women's game is completed what they are often doing is returning to the changing rooms just as the men are in their final stages of warming up and about to run onto the ground, and that is obviously not practical any longer. The club has developed a very sensible and strong solution and are willing to invest heavily in their own facilities. They have won considerable support from the AFL, who have made a funding pledge to upgrade the facilities as well. I will never miss an opportunity, as the club's number one ticketholder, to wish the club's men's senior team every success for the remainder of the season, particularly given they are just two wins away from claiming their 17th premiership. Therefore I would very much urge the minister to consider favourably the loan application made by the club. Hon John EREN MP - Minister for Sport I refer to your adjournment debate matter regarding the application submitted by the Williamstown Football Club to the Community Sports Infrastructure Loans Scheme. Recently, Treasurer Tim Pallas announced that 37 applications had been received from councils, clubs, associations and educational institutions across Victoria seeking a total of $186.5 million towards $427 million worth of community sports projects. This overwhelming response demonstrates that the Community Sports Infrastructure Loans Scheme has been embraced by the sport and recreation sector across Victoria. I can confirm that the Williamstown Football Club's application is currently under assessment by representatives of my department who will evaluate the strategic planning, project development and community benefit of each application accordingly. All projects recommended by the department will then be subject to a financial assessment conducted by the Department of Treasury and Finance to ensure an organisation's financial sustainability and viability. I note your support for the project and commend you for your commitment to advocating the importance of sport and recreation in your electorate. I anticipate announcements of successful applications will take place mid-October.

REMOVING DANGEROUS LEVEL CROSSINGS

Level crossings pose a serious risk to pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and trains and cause travel delays and disruptions on our train lines and roads. The Andrews Government wants to improve the safety and efficiency for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists which is why we’re removing 50 of the most dangerous and congested level crossings in Victoria. Two of these are located within the electorate of Williamstown, on Kororoit Creek Road and Ferguson Street in Williamstown. These crossings are used by 22,000 vehicles a day, and the boom gates are down for hours a day. Tragically, the Ferguson Street crossing claimed the lives of two young children in the 1990s. Both crossings have also seen numerous near misses and they need to be removed. The removal of these crossings will increase safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, and will allow for the partial duplication of the Altona Loop service, meaning fewer delays and more services. They will also increase the reliability of our roads, giving people a greater ability to predict travel times. Work is underway to remove the level crossing at Kororoit Creek Road and partially duplicate the Altona Loop, and works are at the early planning stages for Ferguson Street, with a final design decision yet to be made. For project updates and information about community consultation sessions, please click here for Kororoit Creek and here for Ferguson street.

The West Gate Tunnel Project

The West Gate Tunnel project represents the single largest road project since the West Gate Bridge was opened back in the late 1970s and is an important part of the Andrews Government’s plans to give Melburnians more options and flexibility in how they move about our city. Melbourne’s west is experiencing booming population growth.  Population in the region now stands at approximately 830,000 people, up from 611,000 in 2006. Failure to invest in basic infrastructure such as road and rail to support this growth will have a significant and enduring negative impact on the liveability and economic opportunities for Melbourne’s west. In these circumstances, doing nothing is not an option. The West Gate Tunnel project will provide a vital alternative to the Westgate Bridge, providing a direct link from the freeway to the Port of Melbourne via a tunnel under Yarraville. The project design encompasses the best quality noise walls in Victoria, the creation of 9 hectares of new open space and wetlands, and 14km of new and upgraded cycling and walking paths. The West Gate Tunnel will also remove thousands of trucks off local roads. This delivers a massive win for communities in the inner west, with 24/7 truck bans along Francis Street and Somerville Road set to come into effect once the tunnel begins operation in 2022. In response to concerns among local residents, the Andrews Government also announced additional truck bans along Hudsons Road between Booker Street and Melbourne Road, and along the full length of Blackshaws Road, from Melbourne Road to Grieve Parade. The West Gate Tunnel Project has undergone an extensive and robust planning assessment process, including through an Environment Effects Statement (EES) which has now concluded. Public involvement in the project’s development and EES process has resulted in design improvements and more than 100 requirements being applied to make sure possible environmental effects are well managed. As a result of the EES, a sixth air quality monitoring station will be positioned at Millers Road, in addition to the five air quality monitoring stations originally planned. Millers Road residents north of the West Gate Freeway will also be offered noise reduction options on their properties. This year, Minister for Roads, the Hon. Luke Donnellan also announced a corridor study to be conducted on Millers and Williamstown Roads to determine how we move people and freight now and in the future. The Corridor Study Group will examine potential challenges brought about by the Westgate Tunnel and will do so ensuring community and business needs are both sufficiently met. To access the Terms of Reference for the study, visit this website. The Andrews Government will continue to work constructively with individuals and organisations that raise concerns about the project and remains committed to working with the local community to avoid future adverse impacts. The West Gate Tunnel Project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Melbourne’s west, and when completed will ensure the sustainability and liveability of the inner west.

SKY High and the Education Precinct

Parents in Yarraville, Seddon and Kingsville campaigned for more than a decade to establish a new government secondary school in the inner west and the Andrews Government is delivering one as part of the Footscray Learning Precinct. In a major win for the growing number of families in the area, the Victorian Budget 2018/19 allocated more than $30 million to build a junior campus on Pilgrim Street in Seddon. This represents the single largest funding allocation ever made to an education project in the Williamstown electorate and comes after an allocation of $1.5 million for planning and $10.6 million for construction was made in past budgets. A transition plan will begin next year and a transition coordinator will be appointed to oversee the process. Under the plan: From 2020, Footscray City College will become a new senior campus for Years 10-12. From 2020, Gilmore College will be a co-educational junior campus for Years 7-9. A new secondary campus in Seddon will be a co-educational junior campus for Years 7-9, with construction to commence late this year and the first intake of Years 7 to 8 students scheduled for 2021. In 2019, Gilmore College will start changing its enrolments, with no Years 7 or 11 intake. Current Footscray City College students will complete their school education at the current site. We will appoint a Transition Coordinator in 2018 to develop individual transition plans for students. This project will ensure that every young person in the west has access to a great education and is supported in achieving what they want in the future. More information about the Footscray Learning Precinct can be found at: www.schoolbuildings.vic.gov.au.

Air Pollution in Brooklyn

For a long time, local residents of Brooklyn have been suffering from an influx of dust over their homes due to the poor quality of roads in the Brooklyn Industrial District. This has had a significant impact on the liveability of the great suburb of Brooklyn. To address this, the Victorian Government brokered a $2.6 million partnership to seal two of the area’s dustiest roads in 2015. As part of this new initiative, the Andrews Government contributed $1.85 million to support the redevelopment and sealing of Bunting Road and Jones Road. Since the roads were sealed, the frequency of bad air quality days in the neighbouring residential area has more than halved, with the greatest air quality improvements occurring between 7-10 am. The Andrews Government is committed to working alongside the community to improve air quality in Victoria and kicked off the conversation with Victorians to determine priorities for future air quality management in May 2018 with the Clean Air for All Victorians – Victoria’s Clean Air Statement. Wade Noonan MP and Labor Candidate for Williamstown Melissa Horne, made a submission to the statement, calling for regular air quality monitoring, accessibility of air quality results and the enforcement of strict compliance measures.
