With elevated rail set to be implemented at Noble Park station it's time to talk to the community about whether the Government consulted them.
While the Greens are supportive of improving our public transport infrastructure, including the upgrade of the Cranbourne Pakenham rail corridor and easing local congestion on roads, it is only fair that the people affected by such projects be informed and included as part of that process.
The Greens believe that Labor has not properly consulted with communities on the removal of level crossings between Caulfield and Dandenong. Locals affected by the elevated rail proposal should have been properly informed as part of a genuine consultative process. Instead, Labor has announced their plans via a computer generated graphic and started consultation after the fact. This is the wrong approach, genuine community consultation allows community to engage and influence outcomes, to have a real say in what matters to them.
