Timeline for redevelopment of the Werribee Open Range Zoo | Constituency Question

Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan): My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change and Minister for Solar Homes, the Honourable Lily D’Ambrosio. The Andrews Labor government has announced $84 million for a redevelopment of the Werribee Open Range Zoo to turn it into Australia’s leading open-range zoo. The Werribee zoo is a prominent attraction in my constituency, which is a favourite for families living in Western Metropolitan Region as well as families from outside. Werribee zoo’s redevelopment will deliver a world-class experience. The expansion will create almost 350 local jobs and increase the number of visitors through the gates from 680 000 to 1 million annually. Once completed, the Werribee zoo redevelopment is expected to contribute over $17.8 million annually to Victoria’s economy. My question to the minister is: can the minister provide me an update on the time line of commencement and completion of this project?
