Greens Prahran MP Sam Hibbins says the Melbourne Metro project will adversely impact the local South Yarra community while offering them few benefits.

"There will be major disruptions and loss of amenity during constructions, yet few benefits without a South Yarra interchange," Sam Hibbins said.

"It's hypocritical of the government to say the benefits will justify disruptions, when they use disruption as an excuse not to build a South Yarra interchange with Melbourne Metro.

"The Government's own figures show a South Yarra interchange will deliver significant benefits for South Yarra commuters. An interchange will improve amenity in South Yarra by lifting the South Yarra siding reserve to street level and creating a pedestrian plaza," he said.
