Ballarat West Employment Centre – David Hodgett
Ballarat West Employment Centre

Aligned with the Ballarat Western Link road and residential growth areas, the landmark 623 hectare precinct offers competitive advantages to industry through land, location, infrastructure and transport connections.
The precinct will provide sustainable jobs for the fast growing Ballarat population and will help drive industry, innovation and productivity not only in Ballarat, but across the whole of western Victoria.

Project highlights

  • Plans for the precinct include a 16 hectare Intermodal Freight Hub with access for high performance freight vehicles, a research and development centre and a waste to energy facility.
  • Stage 1 of the $30+ million development included construction of roads, installation of gas, recycled water and NBN facilities, and landscaping.
  • Once fully developed, the zone is expected to generate 9,000 jobs and approximately $5 billion in economic output.
