Mr HIBBINS to ask the Minister for Public Transport — With reference to the Government's election commitment of a second entrance and two extra Myki readers at Prahran Station:

(1)    What are the details of the proposed works.

(2)    When will the works be completed.

(3)    What is the total budget for the works.

 

ANSWER:

I am informed that, as at the date the question was raised:

(1)    The Victorian Government remains committed to providing an additional entry/exit point with two additional myki readers toward the High Street end of Platform 1 (City bound platform) at Prahran station.

This initiative will improve connectivity and ease of access for commuters accessing High Street including access for tram Route 6 which operates between Melbourne University and Glen Iris. At the conclusion of the project both Platform 1 and 2 will have two entry/exit locations.

(2-3) 
Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has completed scoping of the proposal including engagement with the City of Stonnington. Works are expected to be completed by end of the 2014–15 financial year, utilising existing internal PTV funds.
