Liberal Leader Matt Guy has today promised a massive $1.5 Billion in funding for road projects in Wyndham and the greater Western area of Melbourne, saying, “We will deliver the local roads Melbourne’s West deserves”.
The list of roads that include Point Cook, Wyndham Vale and Tarneit are known pain points for Wyndham residents.
Preet Singh, Liberal Member for Tarneit said, “This is massive news for Tarneit residents, our roads have been neglected for a number of years and an LNP government will invest in the much-needed road upgrades.”

$64 million to complete Sayers Road duplication between Morris Road and Davis Road.
