Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (11:54): My constituency question today is for Minister Carroll in the other place. I have recently been contacted by Maria, a constituent who has expressed the concerns of residents from Hawtin Street, Templestowe, and surrounds regarding the proposal to develop an eight-lane road in the centre of the residential zone in Manningham. The residents have concerns that there has not been adequate consultation with the community regarding this development.
I am told that currently neither the construction company managing the development nor the government have provided a clear indication of what is being proposed. So the information I seek is: could the government expand on the development plans for the Williamsons Road expansion and provide what community consultation has taken place and the outcomes of that consultation?
