An Albanese Labor Government will unlock the economic potential of Morisset by investing $30 million to upgrade Mandalong Road between Morisset and the M1.
Labor’s investment will unlock 6,500 new jobs, 4,500 new dwellings and $1.2 billion of capital investment over the next two to five years alone, according to modelling from Lake Macquarie City Council.
Currently, Morisset’s potential is being held back by inadequate roads that can’t support today’s population, let alone tomorrow’s.
By partnering with Lake Macquarie City Council, who have committed $10 million of their own money, Labor will fund new roundabouts at the Gateway Boulevard and Wyee Road intersections and a dual carriageway link in between.
This investment will help develop Morisset into a key Hunter hub for jobs, housing and economic development.
While the Morrison-Joyce Government wastes money on rorted car park funds, an Albanese Labor Government will make the infrastructure investments that actually matter to local communities, delivering secure local jobs across the Hunter.
