The Victorian Government is delivering more accommodation for critical workers across the Mallee region.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green visited Robinvale to view the progress of the Swan Hill Worker Housing project, which is on track for completion in July. It has been backed by $500,000 from the Victorian Government’s Building Works package.
The project will deliver four houses, which will boost accommodation options for workers in the region from vital industries like healthcare and education.
Groundwork for the project is now complete and floor slabs have recently been poured with framing now underway.
The homes are being built at Ronald Street in Robinvale with the Swan Hill Rural City Council planning to further develop the site.
The Government is also supporting seasonal workers through the Ramsay Court Worker Accommodation facility in Mildura which opened in November last year.
The facility was supported by $800,000 from the Building Works package to provide space for up to 56 seasonal workers through 25 rooms. It also includes a communal kitchen, communal laundry and outdoor area.
The $2.7 billion Building Works program is designed to provide immediate and lasting benefit to communities across the state, with more than half the projects in rural and regional Victoria. For more information visit rdv.vic.gov.au/resources/coronavirus/building-works.
