Minister for Public Transport questioned on Rowville Rail funding

Mr Wells (Rowville)

Constituency question – 23/8/18

My question is to the Minister for Public Transport. Minister, now that the Liberal-Nationals have committed to a public transport overlay on all public land for the land corridor needed for the Rowville rail, can you advise the Rowville electorate residents what funding you will provide to match the federal government’s recent announcement of a $475 million funding commitment? Minister, at a recent public forum on Rowville rail attended by more than 300 local residents the vast majority were in favour of a full rail service and not the tram plan floated by your government. It was made very clear at the forum that Rowville rail must be given the green light as a matter of priority.
