Source – Get Wyndham Moving, published November 2014
The Get Wyndham Moving campaign has reached a major milestone, with 5,000 people from across the municipality and the State, signing a petition to improve transport infrastructure- sending a strong message to both political parties.
Signatories representing every suburb in Wyndham have joined the petition, which calls for arterial road duplications, improvements to intersections, the Melbourne Metro Rail Tunnel, funding for West Link, removal of level crossings, more buses and bus routes.
Wyndham Transport spokesperson Cr Glenn Goodfellow said the signatures represented the level of community support for the campaign.
“We have been averaging around 1,000 signatures per month over the last 4 months, demonstrating the strong community support for improved community infrastructure,” Cr Goodfellow said.
“The over 5,000 strong army of people who have joined the campaign through this petition are now too strong for the major political parties to ignore. With only weeks left until the State election, we need commitments from the major parties to fund transport infrastructure upgrades.”
