Better Infrastructure Connections for Armstrong Creek and the Bellarine

with Catherine King MP & Libby Coker MP

Families in Armstrong Creek, Barwon Heads and all across the Bellarine will have quicker and safer commutes to work, school and weekend sport under an Albanese Labor Government, thanks to a $125 million commitment to help build stage 2 of the Barwon Heads Road duplication.

By 2031, Barwon Heads Road is projected to carry up to 44,000 cars and trucks every day and Armstrong Creek is one of Victoria’s fastest growing suburbs. It consists of 2,500 hectares of developable land, which makes it one of the largest growth fronts in the country.

This growth area will provide for 22,000 lots and a population of around 60,000 people.

If we don’t build for that growth now, locals will be trapped in ever-growing gridlock. 

That’s why an Albanese Labor Government will partner with the Victorian Government to duplicate Barwon Heads Road from Reserve Road, past Armstrong Creek, to Lower Duneed Road.

This project will link up with stage 1 of the duplication, between Belmont and Reserve Road, which the Victorian Government is already busy constructing. 

This project will future-proof infrastructure across this growing region, creating local jobs in the construction phase and ensuring that working families can spend less time in the car and more time at home.

And, unlike so many of the Morrison-Joyce Government’s commitments, an Albanese Labor Government will actually deliver it.
