Catch Up campaign - Federal election

The Catch Up campaign calls on the Federal Government to catch up with the City of Whittlesea and match the pace of growth in our community with vital infrastructure.

We don’t have the same access to roads, public transport and community services and facilities as those who live closer to the city. Too often we have to drive for hours just to get to work and basic services, which means more money spent on petrol, more stress and more time away from family and friends.

The Catch Up campaign is asking our politicians to catch up with Whittlesea and:

  • Co-fund the Mernda Health and Wellness Hub to create more than 300 local jobs and provide essential community services.
  • Fund a study into the Wollert Transport Corridor to improve public transport services for the booming population, activity and employment areas.
  • Bring forward the delivery of the E6 freeway connecting the Hume Freeway to the M80 Ring Road. The current timeframe of 15 to 30 years is too long.
  • Co-fund a Mernda aquatic and recreation centre  to enable equitable access to leisure facilities
