GIPPSLAND South MP Danny O’Brien says
a $50m Federal-State package for the South
Gippsland Highway is a great outcome for the
Mr O’Brien, who has been fighting for the
funding to address the dangerous Black Spur
bends between Koonwarra and Meeniyan, said
he was pleased to be able to get the State Gov-
ernment to match the Federal Coalition’s con-
However, he said it was important that the
State Government recognise it would likely
need to increase the funding commitment it has
“The Federal Coalition made its commitment
to the South Gippsland Highway very clear.
“Darren Chester allocated $20m to the Black
Spur project and a further $5m between Foster
“The Labor Government needs to match both
of these commitments and ensure that we up-
grade as much of the highway as possible.
“I understand the Black Spur realignment
is likely to cost more than $50 million which
would mean that the State Government will
need to contribute well more than the $25m
that has been announced so far.
“There was never any obligation for the
Commonwealth to contribute to the South
Gippsland Highway as it is not on the national
network, so the $25m that Darren Chester and
Russell Broadbent have delivered is effectively
a free gift for (Premier) Daniel Andrews and
(Roads minister) Luke Donnellan.
“The State Government must put in any
shortfall to fully fund the Black Spur section
and ensure that the full $10m of joint funding
from federal and state governments for works
east of Foster is delivered.
“I believe that with that $10m we could de-
liver a new overtaking lane between Foster and
Welshpool as well as widening the road and tak-
ing out some of the curves in some sections and
I call on the Labor Government to continue to
work to that effect.
“So far its announcements have been short
on detail, but the people living east of Foster
deserve a better road as well.”
Mr O’Brien said it was clear that the Black
Spur and the wider South Gippsland upgrade
would not have occurred if it was left to the La-
“I know we’ve been waiting for this project for
a long time, but it has taken action by The Na-
tionals Darren Chester and Member for McMil-
lan, Russell Broadbent, to spur the State Gov-
ernment into action.
“I am pleased to have played my part in lob-
bying for this project, but I want to ensure that
it is delivered in full for all South Gippslanders:
that is the Black Spur realignment is completed
as well as works further to the east.”

BASS Coast Shire Council will go to tender
for the detailed design and construction of the
Jetty Triangle in Cowes.
This project is part of the Cowes Revitalisa-
tion Project which involves three catalyst proj-
ects – the Jetty Triangle, Cowes Cultural and
Community Centre, and Transit Centre and All
Day Car Park.
The redevelopment of the Triangle will in-
clude the installation of terraced, grassed ar-
eas for event space, new pathways, landscaping
and access to the Cenotaph.
At the Ordinary Council meeting on Decem-
ber 14, the council gave the green light to go to
tender for the Triangle with an estimated costs
of $2.3 million.
The tender will include a hold point follow-
ing the detailed design to not proceed with
construction until State or Federal funding has
A further report will be presented to the coun-
cil detailing options for progressing the other
two components of the Revitalisation Project.
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, ex-
plained exactly what the council’s decision
meant for the shire.
“This is very exciting news, especially for the
Cowes community and central business dis-
trict, as the redevelopment of the Jetty Triangle
was identified as a priority in the Cowes Activity
Centre Plan,” Cr Rothfield said.
“Once this project is completed, the Triangle
will become a must-visit for tourists and locals
alike as a place to relax, socialise, be enter-
tained and enjoy.”
The council will be going to tender in the first
half of 2017, so people may see consultants,
engineers and landscape architects walking
around the area in preparation for their design
and tender responses.
If you have any questions about the project,
contact the council’s Infrastructure Project
Lead, Derek Peters, on 5671 2493 or email
