The first stage of the Suburban Rail Loop project stops just one station short, leaving Doncaster without rail transport yet again. I have encouraged people to have a say on planning and development of major projects as they evolve, and I encourage them to take every opportunity to push for better transport services.
We hosted two Parliamentary Interns this year with great success. Georgia Bishop’s business case to include Doncaster in Stage 1 of the Suburban Rail Loop won the Presiding Officers Award for most outstanding intern report. Nakshi Mehta’s report on the Rowville Rail project was the runner up.
I’ve asked the Minister for Transport Infrastructure Jacinta Allan to reevaluate Stage 1 and extend the first stage of the Suburban Rail Loop to include Doncaster to ensure that Victorians are better connected as quickly and effectively as possible.
