The opening of a new road in Eynesbury this week is expected to pave the way for future development and events for the township.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held this week, with Melton councillors Ashleigh Vandenberg, Bob Turner and Sophie Ramsey officially opening Greenhill Road, built by Resimax Group.

The road is also expected to be the primary connection to the Wyndham corridor and beyond.

Eynesbury residents can expect further streamlined access to and from the development, which includes about four kilometres of road from Exford Road.

Resimax Group chief executive Steve Hooker said this is a major piece of infrastructure, with a total construction value of $5 million.

“The delivery of Greenhill Road is a major milestone for the project and is one that Resimax Group made an absolute priority,” Mr Hooker said.

“It’s an important piece of infrastructure that Resimax Group committed to when it first took over the development of the region and is an integral part of our development plan.

“This completed infrastructure will also allow for more pedestrian car access, reducing the number of larger vehicles on the current Eynesbury road. It will also provide safer and more timely access for emergency service vehicles.”

Other projects in the works for the group include a fresh recreation reserve, a social concept café and a “decadent” summer festival.

“Festival-goers can expect a jam-packed events schedule, which includes food trucks and entertainment,” Mr Hooker said.

“And for those that prefer to play sport or have a scenic place to walk the dog, Eynesbury recreation reserve is now officially open to the public for use.”
