Melbourne’s west has grown by more than a quarter of a million people over the last decade and continues to experience rapid population growth. We look at the key projects that will shape the future of the West, including the new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital, the Melbourne Airport Rail Link, the Western Melbourne Stadium and the Footscray Learning Precinct.
