“$2 million to plan an upgrade to South Yarra station is a win for local commuters and comes after an extensive campaign to secure an upgrade.”

“South Yarra station is bursting at the seams and previous Liberals & Labor governments have left the station to rot. Population growth and neglect has resulted in an overcrowded entrance and unsafe pedestrian crossings”

“The results of my upgrade South Yarra station survey show commuter’s priorities for the existing station are a northern entrance with platform overpass; an expanded front foyer; heritage character maintained; and a safe pedestrian crossing at Yarra Street.”
