MEMBERS STATEMENT: South Yarra Station

Mr HIBBINS — In last night's federal budget no funds were provided for South Yarra station. In question time in the Legislative Council the government confirmed that the federal government has not sought to include South Yarra station in the Melbourne Metro rail project. South Yarra residents have been left swinging in the wind by the federal government and have been taken for a ride by their federal member. The federal government must now at least allocate some of the $10 million planning money for Melbourne Metro to do detailed design work for South Yarra station and include it in the Melbourne Metro project.
