The State Budget was announced earlier this week, so no doubt many local residents are wondering what (if any) of the budget will be dedicated to projects in the Moorabool region.
According to an article I read in the Moorabool Weekly, there are a couple of projects in the area that we can look forward to:
– The redevelopment of the Ballan Hospital.
– An upgrade to the Ballan railway station.
– $1.4 million towards the O’Keefe Crescent sewer pump station in Bacchus Marsh.
In the State Budget, funds have also been announced for many hospital, school and transport projects around Victoria, that locals may see benefit from.

What do you think about this year’s State Budget? Are you happy with where the State’s money is going?
