The Eastern Transport Coalition, RACV and Monash University will each be stating
their case for the critical need for improved public transport in Melbourne’s
east during the Commuters Count Transport Summit held on Wednesday, April 9.
about time there was a concerted effort to see an integrated public transport network
for Melbourne’s eastern suburbs if we want to see continued economic growth and
social connection for local communities who continue to be overly car reliant.
too long we’ve been waiting for projects like Rowville Rail, critical to
supporting Monash University as well as reducing road congestion.
Paul Barton from Monash University will be speaking
about their concerns at the summit, as will Brian Negus, RACV’s General Manager for Public Policy.
The Commuters Count Transport Summit is a unique
event bringing together representatives from each of the major parties alongside
other key stakeholders in the transport arena, and is a great opportunity to
examine policies and promises prior to the state election.
