2 September 2020 Speech - Box Hill Interchange
My constituency question is for the Minister for Public Transport in the other place. In a series of farcical statements in government media releases over the last five years the Andrews government has announced committee after committee to undertake to study and consult about planning to address the urgent improvements required for the Box Hill interchange. This is needed to cope with our community’s current transport needs and also to deal with the explosion of high-rise developments the government has sanctioned in Box Hill with the ensuing population influx.
My office continually receives communications from constituents who are frustrated about the lack of action and also the lack of advice from the Andrews government about what is planned to fix the problems commuters and residents in Box Hill have been experiencing for years. So my question to the minister is this: what real action—not just waiting on another committee report—is planned to address the Box Hill interchange upgrade, hopefully in the near future?
