Commit to Casey

Thanks to your commitment to the City of Casey’s Commit to Casey campaign, Casey has received $1 billion in direct and $3.6 billion in indirect election commitments and funding.

In the lead up the Victorian State election over 3,000 residents signed Commit to Casey petitions and or emailed their local MP calling on them to fix our roads and extend Cranbourne Rail.

Council harnessed your people power to make the case for these much-needed projects and framed them in the context of population growth, jobs, environment, economic development, sports, health, and education.

In doing so, Commit to Casey quickly grew into one of the most successful campaigns in Victorian history and our community is reaping the benefits of numerous funding commitments.

Why Council launched the campaign?

Council, in partnership with the community, has identified priority road projects – representing some of Victoria’s worst choke-points – that urgently need to be fixed.

Fixing Casey’s roads and extending Cranbourne Rail will boost connections to jobs and services, create more than 18,000 much-needed jobs and inject $1.5 billion into the local economy.

Most importantly, fixing our roads and extending Cranbourne rail will help get people home safer and sooner, so they spend less time stuck in traffic and more time with friends and family.

What the campaign was seeking and why?

Our community deserves its fair share of road and rail funding.

Funding major infrastructure projects is not a local government responsibility – that’s why we’re calling on the State Government and Opposition to Commit to Casey, fix our roads and extend Cranbourne rail.

    South East Melbourne: Driving growth and prosperity

    The City of Casey is a member of the South East Melbourne (SEM) group of councils.

    Through SEM, the councils of the south-east region have come together and joined with businesses and community leaders to create jobs and drive growth and prosperity for the region’s residents.

    South East Melbourne is one of the fastest-growing regions in the fastest-growing city in Australia. More than one million people live in South East Melbourne, and thousands of new families move to the region every year.

    With $43 billion in Gross Regional Product and host to 50 per cent of Melbourne’s manufacturing jobs, South East Melbourne is one of Australia’s most important economic centres.

    SEM advocates for state and federal investment in job-creation, infrastructure and the region’s skills base so that the pace of population growth does not outpace the growth in local jobs, and that liveability is assured for families.

    The councils in the SEM group include the municipalities of Cardinia, Casey, Frankston, Greater Dandenong, Kingston, Monash and Mornington Peninsula. SEM is also partnering with key business and community leaders to drive prosperity in an environmentally sustainable way.

    If you want to know more or if you want to become a supporter of SEM’s work, please visit www.southeastmelbourne.org

    Becoming a supporter is free and we’ll send you an information pack.

    FIVE-YEAR VISION

    SEM’s Five-Year Vision document outlines the priorities of the group up to 2022, it includes investment and productivity growth, jobs growth, investment in training and education and creating the infrastructure needed for a connected community.

  • Extend Cranbourne Rail

    11 months ago
    Location 1 004
    Why has Council launched the campaign?

    Council is seeking a funding commitment to duplicate the Cranbourne Railway line from Dandenong to Cranbourne and extend the line to Clyde in the next term of government.

    Why is it needed?

    The Casey population is set to exceed 500,000 by 2041.

    Last year Cranbourne East was the fastest growing area in Australia and the adjoining Clyde region is set to grow by 478% by 2041.

    Casey is already one of Victoria’s most poorly public transportserviced municipalities – this can’t go on, urgent action is needed.

    Last year Cranbourne East was the fastest growing area in Australia and the adjoining Clyde region is set to grow by 478% by 2041.

    Casey is already one of Victoria’s most poorly public transportserviced municipalities – this can’t go on, urgent action is needed.

    If urgent action is not taken the region will almost be built out before Cranbourne Railway line is extended – rapid growth and no rail extension is a recipe for disaster.

    The Casey Community deserves its fair share of public transport funding and is calling on the State Government and Opposition to Commit to Casey and extend Cranbourne Railway line.

    How will the community benefit?

    Extending Cranbourne Railway line to Clyde will create more than 9,750 jobs and inject $841 million
    into the local economy.

    It will make sure that the necessary public transport infrastructure is in place to service our growing communities, and support the development of new town centres and services.

  • Fix Our Roads

    11 months ago
    Location 3 015

    The Casey Community deserves its fair share of road funding and is calling on the State Government and Opposition to Commit to Casey and fix our roads.

    What does Casey need?

    The City of Casey in partnership with our community has identified six priority road projects – representing some of Victoria’s worst choke points – that urgently need to be fixed.

    This $1.2 billion package will unclog roads, improve freeway access, better link Casey to Dandenong and Cardinia’s job hubs and plan for growing communities in Cranbourne East and North, Clyde, Clyde North and Bontanic Ridge.

    The Casey Community deserves its fair share of road funding and is calling on the State Government and Opposition to Commit to Casey and fix our roads.

    What does Casey need?

    The City of Casey in partnership with our community has identified six priority road projects – representing some of Victoria’s worst choke points – that urgently need to be fixed.

    This $1.2 billion package will unclog roads, improve freeway access, better link Casey to Dandenong and Cardinia’s job hubs and plan for growing communities in Cranbourne East and North, Clyde, Clyde North and Bontanic Ridge.

    Improving Freeway Access

    · Extend the Southern Dandenong Bypass through to South Gippsland Freeway and complete the South Gippsland Freeway / M1 connection

    · Duplicate the Pound Road – Greaves Road – O’Shea Road route from Hampton Park to the M1 Beaconsfield interchange

    Better Community Connections

    · Complete the duplication of Narre Warren – Cranbourne Road, from Thompsons Road to South Gippsland Highway

    · Complete the duplication of the Berwick – Cranbourne Road route from Thompsons Road through Pattersons Road to Narre Warren Cranbourne Road

    Casey Job Links

    · Extend Glasscocks Road from South Gippsland Highway through to Dandenong Frankston Road

    · Extend Thompsons Road from Clyde Road to Cardinia Road

    Why is it needed?

    In Casey, too many families spend too much time stuck in traffic each day – all they want is to get where they need to be safer and sooner.

    Over the past 10 years the Casey population has doubled and is set to exceed 500,000 by 2041. With more people come more cars and more congestion. In the past five years alone, the number of Casey residents who drive to work has increased by 20%.

    How will the community benefit?

    Delivering this roads package will create more than 8,500 jobs and inject $673 million into the local economy. It will keep traffic moving and better connect Casey residents to jobs, services and most importantly, their families.
