Building and development projects to continue playing a huge role in the state’s recovery

Roadmap for the re-opening of industries out of strict restrictions to be released

Almost a month ago, the whole of Victoria has declared a state of emergency and Melbourne entered Stage 4 restrictions wherein a list of stricter restrictions are to be implemented.
