MR RICH-PHILLIPS (South Eastern Metropolitan) (12:40:00) — My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport regarding the much-needed extension of Cranbourne rail to Clyde. Last week the Leader of the Opposition announced that a Liberal-National government after 2018 will expand our transport network by extending the metropolitan rail network from Cranbourne to Clyde. As part of this transport infrastructure project new stations will be built at Cranbourne East and Clyde, along with 350 additional parking spaces. Local bus services will also be improved to connect commuters to the new railway stations at Cranbourne East and Clyde.

I ask the Minister for Public Transport, given this project is important to the people of Cranbourne and to the people of South Eastern Metropolitan Region, whether the Minister for Public Transport stands by her previous statements and the government's previous response to Infrastructure Victoria that this vital rail infrastructure is not needed for at least 10 to 15 years?
