Is Truganina really that bad?

The reviews on Truganina makes living there a turnoff. I was thinking of buying land and build in Truganina, but now am very doubtful with all the negative reviews. Being next to willams landing where future big shopping centre and railways without having to pay the premium price of it appeals to me. I know the rds are old but wouldn't they be fixing this up in future? I have also thought of going to point cook but it seems so boxed in to me.

Living in Truganina/Tarneit/Hoppers Crossing, that area is fine. It is getting a little crowded for its own good, but there are plenty of shops to get what you need..
Getting out during Peak hour and coming home is a bit of a pain. The public transport is good/ok depending on where you actually build.
I lived in the werribee/hoppers crossing/tarneit area for 8 years and it was fine. It was a good place to live.

I will be constructing in Truganina soon, did my research pretty thorough.

1. I work in city, if I had my property in Southeastern suburb, which is far from Clyde north/ Pakehanam etc., Cannot pick my kids on time, need to pay lot for day care center as commute is more than 100 mins. Also cannot be productive in office.

2. New Train station coming up. Source: PTV (no BS) and VPA (https://vpa.vic.gov.au/project/truganina/)

3. 2 new towncenter, 2schools coming up.

4. Western tunnel project is going to ease conjestion. (https://www.transurban.com/our-operations/our-projects/west-gate-tunnel)


I guess I got my facts right to say it is going to be a pretty good investement property in future as well a potential residential one as well.

Dude any outer suburban purpose built estates are bad investments...

Truganina is on the fast track to be the next ghetto in Victoria...

You need to be walking distance to a metropolitan train station or don't buy... do not be seduced by a new house in a flat lifeless paddock like the rest of the peanuts that live out there...
