Andrews Government’s cost claim on Domain Station wears thin

The Andrews Government’s windfall $9.7 billion from the lease of the Port of Melbourne means it should now scrap its flawed Domain Station construction plans and do the job properly.

The Andrews Government has taken the cut-price construction method for Domain Station rather than consider the best option for the community.

The Andrews Government’s flawed construction plans will mean extensive disruption for residents, commuters and business owners along St Kilda Road.

This is why thousands of people have recently signed a petition calling for the Andrews Government to abandon its plans to build Domain Station using cut and cover.

This is a once in a generation opportunity to improve Melbourne’s transport network and Daniel Andrews must get it right.
