My question is for the Minister for Environment in the other place, and I ask: what is the progress on the Healesville freeway reserve upgrade? When those opposite or beside me were last in government they tried to sell off the reserve to developers. The local community from Forest Hill, Vermont and Vermont South put up a fight to stop the overdevelopment of this wonderful open green space. Ahead of the 2014 election we committed to saving the Healesville freeway reserve, and we have delivered on our promise. The Andrews Labor government has now committed $10.5 million to transform the reserve into a user-friendly space for everyone in our community. Currently the reserve holds 35 hectares of unused space, spanning 3.5 kilometres from Springvale Road to the Morack Public Golf Course. From installing proper walking tracks to playgrounds through the reserve, the master plan will provide vibrant and usable space for those in my district. I know that my constituents are looking forward to seeing progress on the reserve, and I look forward to the minister’s response with an update on this great project.
