Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): My constituency question is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, and I ask: what is the latest information on the upgrade to South Yarra station? I note that works have begun to widen the front entrance, which is no doubt welcomed by commuters as it will prevent the overcrowding that was occurring on a daily basis. But there was disappointment when the local council voted to stop the upgrade to the tram stop, which prevents people with a disability, parents with prams and other people with mobility issues from accessing the station once they have got off the tram. Residents would appreciate an update on the progress of getting the tram stop built. Of course there is more to do beyond the proposed stage 1 works: more entrances and making Yarra Street safe for pedestrians. We know there is a full master plan that was developed for the site. I would encourage the minister to make that public so the community can see it and comment on it. I welcome the start of the works. I am looking for a further update on works and encourage further upgrades in the upcoming state budget.
