Bolton St night works safety risks

Thursday, March 15, 2018

For the last six months thousands of motorists have endured horrendous congestion while work has dragged on.

More Youth Services needed in Eltham

Thursday, January 25, 2018

The suggestion is a study recommendation by Mary Wooldridge's parliamentary intern, Kate Sullivan, who investigated youth engagement in the Eltham electorate and its current and future needs. In her report Ms Sullivan said while Eltham already had a number of excellent youth services, they were fragmented and not as accessible as they should be.

Construction Pain on Bolton Street

Friday, January 12, 2018

To Eltham residents it appears this government is oblivious to the pain that this construction work is causing. Traders on the street argue their income has been cut by up to 40% yet the government is doing nothing to alleviate their concerns.

Daniel Andrews continues to short-change Eltham residents

Thursday, December 14, 2017

I have asked the Government in Parliament why it has only committed a quarter of the funds that were requested and are needed to upgrade the 40-year-old Diamond Valley Sports and Fitness Centre.

Government needs to act over delays to Bolton Street works

Friday, December 08, 2017

The construction activity, work delays and partial road closures have resulted in local traders facing mounting income losses. Yesterday and today residents have reported no construction activity along the road but the northbound lane closure and traffic diversions are still in place.

Fire risk increased as back burns postponed

Friday, November 24, 2017

I've asked the Government to explain why back burning of highly-populated and at-risk areas such as Eltham has been postponed. There are indications that this summer will be one of elevated fire risk. However, not all planned burning to reduce fuel loads has occurred.

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

This centre is over 40 years old and is a vital facility used extensively by the Eltham community. While it has undergone a number of minor upgrades in the last 15 years, it now needs substantial renovations to meet the community's needs and expectations both now and in the future.

Fitzsimons Lane a 'gridlocked nightmare' during Bolton Street works.

Friday, November 10, 2017

Residents describe the traffic as a 'completely gridlocked nightmare'. VicRoads has closed the northbound lane on Bolton Street and traffic is being funneled along Main Road. This was okay during the school holidays when traffic was lighter, but the current closure is causing massive traffic issues.

What's the future for the old Eltham CFA building?

Friday, November 10, 2017

The site is on prime land and situated near the central shopping strip, but it has not been used as a fire station since the new $10.5 million station, on which construction began under the former Liberal government, opened for operation in March 2016. However, the Minister has said that the former Eltham CFA fire station will not be sold, so I asked the Minister, what will the former CFA building now be used for?

Eltham resident's views re NE Link

On the other hand, more than 47% favoured Option 1, while 41% supported a route that would go through Eltham and link with Eastlink.
