Streetscape upgrades on the way to Niddrie

CR TYSON BUDGET

Council will be investing in a range of improvements across the city, including $455,000 worth of upgrades on Keilor Road in Niddrie as part of the 2021-2022 Annual Budget.

Councillor Pierce Tyson visited the Keilor Road shopping precinct in June, and was met with some Frozen characters and excited community members to celebrate this bustling neighbourhood.

The allocated funding is welcomed in the popular Niddrie precinct, especially after a tough 18 months the local businesses have experienced during the pandemic.

Council is dedicated to supporting our community as they recover from the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and upgrades to the streetscape and shopping precinct on Keilor Road will further enhance the street for businesses and community members.

After careful review of 51 formal public submissions, the new councillor group worked hard to ensure the budget funding reflected community concerns. Economic recovery from the pandemic is a priority to the community, which has been reflected in this budget.
