When we came to Government, we promised to deliver for every corner of Victoria.That’s because we want every parent in regional or rural Victoria to be confident their kids can reach their full potential – not matter where they live. And for the past three years, that’s exactly what we’ve done.
We’ve invested more than $8.5 billion in regional Victoria since coming to office in 2014. The Victorian Budget 2018/19 continues this momentum by investing over $4.3 billion.
World class healthcare
No matter where they live, every Victorian deserves quality healthcare, close to home.
That’s why this Budget invests in the health of our regional communities
Upgrades to schools for our kids
Wherever they live, every child deserves every chance to get a great education. The Government has invested $775 million to improve Victoria’s regional schools.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 builds on this work, investing $180.8 million to build and upgrade 60 regional schools.
Better roads and public transport to connect every community
The problem in regional Victoria isn’t that we don’t have enough roads. It’s that the roads we do have aren’t in good enough condition. Decades of underinvestment and inattention mean that our country roads need an overhaul.
The Victorian Budget 2018/19 provides more than $941 million for this work.
