If you're free on Wednesday, see if you can register...

Following the Footscray forum there's one coming up in North Melbourne. Previously, they've asked for 'any interested parties', so you might want to try to register and get along, if you're available.


The Brumby Government is preparing a major transport plan for Melbourne and regional Victoria.

This plan, which will be released by the end of the year, will provide a strategy for not only Melbourne's east and west, but also for our northern and south-eastern suburbs as well as regional Victoria.

To develop a plan that will apply to the diverse needs and aspirations of all Victorians I am contacting local organisations and groups with an interest in Melbourne's transport future. The purpose of the consultation is to provide an opportunity to learn more about Victoria's transport challenges, outline the current planning process, raise matters of concern, and identify opportunities for Victoria's future transport network.

I am interested in your ideas as local community representatives and therefore would like to invite two members of your organisation to attend the Melbourne Transport Forum so we can discuss these important issues.

The details of the Forum are provided below.

Date: Wednesday, 27 August 2008

Time: 4.30 – 6pm

Location: 146 – 148 Peel St, North Melbourne, Mel Ref. 2B 10B

To register your attendance, please contact my office via telephone (03) 9328 4637 or email by Friday August 22.

I look forward to working with you at the Melbourne Transport Forum. The feedback I receive at this Forum will be considered at a Transport Summit, which will be hosted by the Premier in September.

There's also one for the Eastern Metropolitan Region, hosted by the Minister for Roads, Tim Pallas. That would be a really interesting one, seeing how they have stated they don't want to build the rail link to Doncaster - details as follows. Get along, if that's your neighbourhood

Date Tuesday 26 August 2008

Time 8:30am to 11:30am (registration from 8:15am)

To register your attendance at the event and to advise of any dietary requirements, please contact us on (03) 9655 6089 or email
We look forward to working with you to help shape Victoria's future transport network.
