Creating Local Jobs
With all these great local projects going on, it’s important we support our local community with jobs and training on these builds.
Check out how we’re delivering more local jobs in our patch!
Our local infrastructure projects are delivering more local jobs for our community.
On the Mordialloc Freeway, we’ve got more than 400 workers on the job, over 1,000,000 total hours worked so far. With at least 96 per cent of materials and employment is sourced locally.
The Level Crossing Removal project has supported thousands of jobs across the Frankston train line.
We’re delivering for our next generation of Victorian workers, with 10% of all work hours on the level crossing removals and Mordialloc Freeway, as well as every other Victorian Government major infrastructure project going directly to apprentices, trainees, and cadets.
We’ve brought in almost 2 million tonnes of material from local trenching work to construct the foundations of the Mordialloc Freeway - mostly from the Mentone and Cheltenham level crossing removal project. The Freeway has also been constructed with recycled materials, including reused water, recycled asphalt and pipe to ensure its sustainably made.
