Constituency Question - Gardiner station car park

Mr M. O'BRIEN (Malvern) — (Question 2845) My question is to the Minister for Public Transport. I refer the minister to the works underway to remove the level crossing on Burke Road, Glen Iris, at Gardiner station, a project in my electorate that was fully funded by the coalition government in last year's budget. By the time of the election last year, the project had gone through deep and regular consultation with the local community, including Stonnington City Council. As a consequence, the project put to tender by the former government had full community backing.   However, after the change of government, the Andrews Labor government decided with no community consultation whatsoever to significantly alter the project design. In particular the location of the access point to the Carroll Crescent carpark has now been moved from close to Burke Road to directly opposite Clarke Street. Local residents are appalled that this major design change has been forced upon them with no consultation and no warning. They fear it will create a major traffic hazard. I ask the minister why she has changed the design of this project with no community consultation? She needs to listen to the local community on this important rail project.
