St Albans Electorate Infrastructure | Members Statements
Ms SULEYMAN (St Albans) (10:03:18) — What a week it has been for the electorate of St Albans with the fantastic Andrews Labor government’s announcement that it will invest $5 billion towards the long-awaited Melbourne Airport rail link. This means in my electorate, in the heart of Sunshine, there will be a brand-new super-hub station. This is a game changer for the west. Connecting Victoria and Sunshine with the world, providing vital jobs and world-class public transport. Not only have we removed the two dangerous level crossings at Main Road and Furlong Road, St Albans, and celebrated their one-year birthday but we are also building the Metro Tunnel. The Metro Tunnel will free up space in the city loop. This means more trains along the Sunbury line and also a less crowded and more reliable train network within my electorate of St Albans. There is no doubt that Labor understands the importance of investment in our public transport system and hospitals. We are the government that is building the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital, again in the heart of St Albans. I am very proud that we are building the foundations that will build a better future and, most importantly, we have a proven track record of delivering important and vital infrastructure in Melbourne’s west. We do not just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
