Title
Stop the proposed sky rail at Parkdale
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that there are risks and issues associated with the proposed sky rail at Parkdale.

The proposed sky rail will decrease property value, negatively impact the character of the neighbourhood and catastrophically impact small businesses. It will create visual bulk that overshadows property, local shops and reduce daylight. This will attract crime and anti-social behaviour such as vandalism, graffiti and dumping of rubbish. The sky rail will also increase noise to the surrounding community.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to immediately stop work on the proposed sky rail at Parkdale, conduct community consultation that includes local residents, small businesses and the South East Community Forum and ensure that level crossings at Warrigal Road, Mentone and Parkdale Railway Station are placed underground.
