In the lead-up to the 2022 Victorian State Government election, we are keeping track of all candidates' election pledges for Hobsons Bay.

Our pledge tracker

The purpose of the tracker is to monitor election funding pledges made by lower house candidates for the Victorian State Government election in electorates within Hobsons Bay.

Included pledges must:

  • Be new projects or commitments - not reannouncements of existing projects funded by government
  • Have an associated funding amount or contain enough detail to understand exactly what is being funded
  • Relate to Council owned services, properties or advocacy priorities.

This tracker is not an endorsement for any particular candidate or party - it is a transparent information resource to keep Hobsons Bay residents informed of local commitments. 

All pledges are conditional and their delivery is dependent on election outcomes and future decisions around government expenditure. The information on this tracker will be updated as new pledges are announced. 

Pledges that align with Council's advocacy priorities are marked with an (AP). Learn more about our advocacy priorities

Pledges that apply to more than one electorate will be marked with an *

WEST East Metro Rail Plan

We believe the WEST East Metro Rail Plan, developed by highly respected rail think tank, Rail Futures Institute, creates a commuter network that will meet the needs of Melbourne’s western metropolitan communities in Hobsons Bay, Wyndham, Maribyrnong, Moonee Valley, Brimbank and Melton - a combined population of more than 1.07 million people. With new stations including Paisley Station (Altona North), South Kingsville and a new underground station at Spotswood, the WEST East Rail Plan would provide an essential rail connection to help residents in Melbourne’s western suburbs commute to the CBD and beyond. It is estimated to cost about one-third the cost of the Suburban Rail Loop.

Hobsons Bay Wetlands Centre

We are calling on the state and federal governments to invest in a Wetlands Centre in the heart of Melbourne's west at HD Graham Reserve (Altona Meadows). With views of the stunning Cheetham Wetlands, this is an internationally recognized Ramsar protected site which plays hosts to thousands of migratory shorebirds from across the world each year.
