$215,000 safety upgrade at Moorabbin Reserve

The Andrews Labor Government is investing in upgrades to improve safety and encourage more people to use Moorabbin Reserve, as well as help cut down on crime.

Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos today joined Kingston Mayor Steve Staikos to announce over $215,000 in funding for the City of Kingston to improve lighting and access.

New lighting and paving will be installed to activate the area and improve perceptions of safety.

The project has received funding through the latest round of Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants, with 20 councils across Victoria to share in more than $3.4 million funding for 20 projects.

The Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants program supports projects that improve community safety and confidence in public places.

It is part of the Victorian Government’s $19.4 million investment in its Community Crime Prevention Program, aimed at tackling crime and its root causes.
