The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with delivering its commitment to build 11,000 new and upgraded car parking spaces at stations across the state. This is on top of the almost 10,000 new and upgraded spaces built by the Government between 2014 and the last election.


However, this work and the matters you have raised do not fall under my portfolio responsibilities. The Member for Ferntree Gully may wish to direct his question to the Minister for Public Transport, the Hon Ben Carroll MP.





Hon Jacinta Allan MP 

Minister for Transport Infrastructure
