Adjournment- Jordanville Train Station

Mr  FREGON (Mount Waverley) (4516)

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Public Transport. The action I seek is for the minister to visit Jordanville railway station and join me to inspect upgrade works at the site. With funding allocated as part of Labor’s $150 million Car Parks for Commuters Fund, as well an additional funding stream provided as part of the $23 million COVID-19 economic recovery investment in transport, Jordanville station will be receiving 40 new and upgraded car parking spaces, plus new lighting, security—CCTV—and signage.

The station has long been flagged by my local constituents as significantly lacking adequate onsite parking, in particular, and for the need for additional all-day parking spaces for commuters. I’m excited that we are delivering on our re-election promise to build these necessary facilities and upgrade a station in need of renovation and modernisation.

I welcome these crucial works in our local community to improve public transport usability and accessibility, as well as the improvements they will provide to the safety and security of commuters. I look forward to the minister’s response.
