Square deal

Construction of the $45 million
CS Square redevelopment started last week. The Caroline Springs shopping centre will be expanded by 6500 square metres and will include a Woolworths supermarket, large discount store, car wash, more than 10 specialty stores and a new parents’ room. The works are due to be complete next year.

 

Fatal accident

A woman died after the car she was driving crashed into a tree in Toolern Vale last week. Investigators have been told the Holden hatchback was travelling south on the Gisborne-Melton Road just before 9pm when it struck the tree. The 44-year-old Kurunjang woman, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, died at the scene.
