Work continues at pace on key transport projects that will boost accessibility across the region. The $11 billion-plus Metro Tunnel from South Kensington to South Yarra is on track to open by 2025, with the tunnel excavation finished and work well underway to build five new stations. When complete it will include the new Arden Station and improve the area’s connectivity to Melbourne’s CBD.

A flurry of high-profile residential and commercial development across Moonee Valley continues to add to the region’s reputation as an aspirational lifestyle destination. Early work has begun on the $2 billion redevelopment of Moonee Valley Racecourse, which will include dwellings, cafes, shops and parkland, attracting 4000 new residents over the next 15 years.
