Melbourne Airport Rail Link | Members Statement

Ms SULEYMAN (St Albans) (10:02:11) — Last week I joined the Premier and the Minister for Public Transport in Sunshine in my electorate to announce the opening of expressions of interest to build the airport rail link. We will build a super-hub station at Sunshine. This is a game changer for the west, connecting Sunshine and the west to Victoria and the world.

Labor has a proven track record when it comes to building infrastructure in my electorate of St Albans. We have removed the level crossings at Main Road and Furlong Road in St Albans, we are building the new $200 million Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital, we are investing $29.3 million directly towards building a new emergency department at Sunshine and of course we are investing a record amount into education, upgrading and building new schools in my electorate. But we are also building the Metro Tunnel, unlocking the city loop so we can have more services, and if re-elected, we will build the Suburban Rail Loop so you can jump on the train from Sunshine and go all the way to Cheltenham.

The Labor government is making things happen, and there is much more work to be done.
