The Allan Labor Government will contribute $5 million towards the Bendigo Low Line project, the Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards MP and the Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan MP announced today.

The project is a key part of City of Greater Bendigo’s Reimagining Bendigo Creek plan. It will transform the Bendigo CBD, delivering an extension to the Bendigo Creek channel walkway between Golden Square, White Hills and the Bendigo town Centre.

It includes a 4.4km shared walking and cycling path, an active and safe off-road transport corridor and will connect many of Bendigo’s major recreational, business and tourism attractions.

The Allan Labor Government is building on its support for regional Victoria with exciting new projects set to boost local economies, build even stronger communities and give people even more reasons to stop and visit.

The Labor Government’s $25 million Council Support Package, now fully acquitted, has successfully helped shovel-ready projects get off the ground in our biggest regional cities and surrounding towns.

The package funds projects that are designed to increase tourism, improve local infrastructure, strengthen businesses and empower volunteers – with grants ranging from $20,000 and $5 million depending on size and scope.

The Council Support Package has backed 27 projects across regional Victoria, and complements the Tiny Towns Fund, which is backing projects that really matter to local communities in smaller towns of up to 5,000 people. Tiny Towns Fund first round projects will be announced in the coming months, with both programs delivered through Regional Development Victoria.

These initiatives are part of the Labor Government’s record $45 billion investment in regional Victoria since 2014, making our regions even better places to live, work and visit.
