Hume City - 2022 Federal Election

Federal Election campaign.jpg

Hume City Council is one of Australia's fastest-growing and most diverse communities. Our population of 257,000 will expand to 394,000 in the next 20 years, and we need vital infrastructure and services to grow with us.

In the lead up to the 2022 Federal Election, we’re calling on candidates from every political party to help Hume prosper. We need investment that relieves road congestion, helps hard-hit communities recover from COVID-19, creates tertiary education opportunities where we live and supports refugees and asylum seekers making a life in Hume.

Hume’s 2022 Federal Election priorities   

Council is calling for investment in the following key projects:

  • Congestion-busting projects to unlock our City‘s economic potential:
    • Delivery of the Bulla Bypass
    • Delivery of the Outer Metropolitan Ring Road
    • Hume Freeway upgrades
  • Tertiary education options in Hume’s growth areas, so we can learn close to home    
  • COVID recovery initiatives to address ongoing employment and mental health issues   
  • Support for refugees and asylum seekers, including reinstatement of Status Resolution Support Services, access to essential medical services, and education and employment opportunities.
