To commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley has called for an Avenue of Honour to be planted.

In Parliament last night Ms Graley asked the Minister for Roads to include the planting of an avenue of honour along Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road as part of the ongoing upgrade works.

Ms Graley said that an avenue of honour would be a lasting and heartfelt tribute to those who sacrificed so much to ensure that we live peacefully and freely in this great country.

“Our community has a proud history of celebrating and recognising the service of those who have served our nation, yet despite a number of new roads projects no new avenues of honour have been planted,”

“The upgrade of Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road, a major road linking our two communities and with sweeping views of the Dandenong’s provides us with the perfect opportunity,”

“It is an opportunity to create something truly beautiful, memorable and befitting of the men and women who must never be forgotten,”

“Let us make Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road an avenue of honour that reflects our deep gratitude and admiration for all those who fought and sacrificed so much for us all.”
