The hunt for a car park will be easier for Ballarat locals with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to fund more free car parking across the city.

Labor has driven a massive construction blitz for Ballarat – upgrading local roads and rail, modernizing local schools and rebuilding the Ballarat Base Hospital.

Ballarat GovHub is on its way, delivering more jobs right in the heart of the city, transforming the Civic Hall site and driving even more economic growth in Ballarat.

But there’s more to do, and only Labor will build 1,000 extra free car parks across Ballarat CBD, taking the pressure off neighbouring streets and making it easier to get in and out of the city.

Multi-deck car parks will be considered and because locals know local needs best, Labor will work with Council and the local community to determine locations of the car parks.

This investment is expected to create and support around 50 jobs for Victorians.

While the former Liberal Government failed to invest in our state’s regional communities - cutting funding for schools, hospitals, road and rail – only Labor can be trusted to deliver the big projects local communities really need.
