Cranbourne East is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 44 km south-east of Melbourne’s central business district. Its local government area is the City of Casey.
The State Government’s 2008 Victorian Transport Plan transport policy includes the new station at Cranbourne East, and have given it a medium timeframe for construction. It is scheduled to be built by 2015, at a cost of $200 million. Such an extension would extend suburban services by around 2 km.
The Growth Areas Authority released a draft report known as the ‘Cranbourne East Development Plan’ in 2008, aiming to develop available land within the following few years within the suburb and neighbouring Clyde North. The land is roughly bounded by the South Gippsland Highway, Casey Fields, Berwick – Cranbourne Road, and Thompson Road. The development plan includes a mixture of parkland, high and low density housing, and a small industrial precinct. (Source : Wikipedia) Continue Reading →
