8 October 2013 — The East Werribee Precinct Structure Plan, an employment and investment hub, has been given the green light.
East Werribee will generate more than 58,000 jobs and more than 7000 homes.
Premier Denis Napthine said the precinct was the largest commercial precinct on government owned land in Victoria’s history, with access to a major freeway and proximity to ports and two airports.
East Werribee will be developed as a 775 hectare precinct on the site of the former State Research Farm.
The government will advertise for tenders on Wednesday, 9 October for interested firms to construct a full diamond freeway interchange at Sneydes Road.
