Ms PENNICUIK (Southern Metropolitan) — My constituency question is for the Minister for Public Transport. In June last year, by way of a constituency question, I asked the minister what was going to be the fate of the heritage Carnegie and Murrumbeena stations during the level crossing renewal project along the Caulfield–Dandenong line. She responded that the design was considering the impact on heritage places and acknowledging the local value of the existing station and that it would include the possibility of relocating existing station buildings for community use or incorporating elements of the station buildings into the new designs.

Yesterday the minister released some information about the public open space along this particular corridor but there was no mention of what is happening to the stations, so I ask the minister: what is happening with the heritage Carnegie and Murrumbeena stations and parts thereof which the Level Crossing Removal Authority have informed me had been stored for use on the site?
