SPE­CIALISED fam­ily vi­o­lence court­rooms would be built by a re-elected La­bor gov­ern­ment as part of a $152 mil­lion re­build of Bendigo’s courts precinct.

Premier Daniel An­drews made the an­nounce­ment yes­ter­day with Bendigo East MP and Pub­lic Trans­port Min­is­ter Jac­inta Al­lan.

The plan is part of a wider con­struc­tion blitz around the city and will cre­ate 450 jobs.

The new build­ing, on a for­mer TAFE site, would in­clude a fam­ily vi­o­lence court­room and bet­ter se­cu­rity for vic­tims of crime.

Mr An­drews said new law courts would pro­vide mod­ern and safe fa­cil­i­ties.
