Take Action


The Victorian Government should be protecting and preserving our native birds, not facilitating their injury and slaughter. Tell the Premier to end this cruel practice.

Ms PENNICUIK (Southern Metropolitan) — My constituency question is for the Minister for Public Transport, and it concerns the level crossing removal at Koornang and Murrumbeena roads and the proposed rebuilding of Carnegie and Murrumbeena stations. Both stations were opened in 1879 — 137 years ago — Carnegie originally as Rosstown station. I am very familiar with both stations from using the Cranbourne-Pakenham lines and from cycling alongside them for many years. Following discussions with the Level Crossing Removal Authority, I am concerned that it plans to demolish the stations.
