Westbrook residents set to benefit from new Fortitude Drive Reserve.

March 2024 in Construction

Over the coming years Tarneit North and Truganina will become home to over 15 active open space reserves, each offering a variety of different experiences to ensure the sporting and active recreation needs of the local community are achieved.

One such space is the new Fortitude Drive Reserve. Located right in the heart of Westbrook on the corner of Morris Road and Fortitude Drive in Truganina, the proposed 12.96 hectare Reserve adjacent to Bemin Secondary College Senior Campus, is also close to both Tarneit Station and the future Tarneit Town Centre. This central location has seen Fortitude Drive Reserve emerge as a key pillar of the City of Wyndham’s Sports Strategy and 2040 Vision. Finalised in July 2022 following extensive community consultation, the Council’s Master Plan for the Reserve sets out a long term plan for the future use, management and development of the Truganina site, including future proofing Athletics facilities in Wyndham as well as providing increased access to open space for the area’s fast-growing number of residents.

Fortitude Drive Reserve is also one of the most significant amenities outlined in the in the Westbrook Masterplan and is set to deliver significant benefits to both Westbrook residents and the wider Wyndham community. Upon completion, the Reserve will be home to state-of-the-art athletics facilities including a full synthetic track, circuit track and shared use pavilion, as well as a hockey playing field. Alongside this, space has also been allocated for informal recreation activities including kickabout zones, shaded BBQ and picnic areas, walking trails and a playground, a jogging track, plenty of on-site carparking and much more, with new premium sporting and recreational precinct expected to provide a popular and inviting destination where the local community can come together.

The Council has estimated the first stage of the development, providing key athletics infrastructure to meet demand, will cost approximately $8.83M, with all other elements of the proposed Master Plan to delivered as part of a future stage subject to funding availability.

The first stage of the Reserve’s development is scheduled to commence in October this year and is expected to be completed in late 2025.
