Dyson Drive tops council's budget wish list


Dyson Drive will be at the forefront of council's mind when the state budget gets handed down on Thursday.

Traffic congestion is proving a thorn in the side of commuters and chief executive Evan King says the road's duplication is at the top of council's wish list.

"What it does is help move people to the Wendouree Train Station and the Western Highway," he said.

"We call this the decongestion project and we want people to be able to move around efficiently."

The project is estimated to cost 11.5 million dollars.
