A number of major projects are currently underway in Greater Dandenong, with the ones most affecting manufacturers and businesses including the removal of level crossings and the connection to the National Broadband Network.

We have invited both Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) and nbn Co. to attend the AGM to answer our members’ burning questions. This is a great opportunity to speak face to face with a knowledgeable representative who can provide you with individual advice and information and inquire about updates affecting your business.

Visit their pop-up stands in the Networking area after meeting concludes.

Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) is a dedicated government body – under the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority – responsible for planning and delivering major road projects for Victoria.

MRPV oversees the delivery of major road projects around metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. MRPV projects include new roads, road widenings, new bridges and major freeway upgrades – including the Mordialloc Freeway and South Eastern Roads Upgrade.

MRPV is building better connections for Victoria, helping to reduce congestion and travel times, improve safety, and improve the roads Victorians rely on every day.

The rollout of the nbn™ broadband access network opens up opportunities for businesses. With this significant upgrade comes a number of changes, transitions and migrations.

It is important to understand and plan for these, not only to help mitigate any risk of disruption, but to maximise the opportunity such changes can bring.

Speak with a representative from our new team at business nbn™ who can answer your local queries and recommend solutions. Our team is poised to help service providers meet the varying requirements of Australian businesses – from sole traders and middle-sized businesses to enterprise level companies.
