Victorian Government Legislative Council Hansard

Mr ONDARCHIE (Northern Metropolitan) — My question is to the Minister for Public Transport and it regards the Aurora Estate in Epping North. When residents first looked at moving into the Aurora Estate in Epping North in 2002 the then Labor government promised them a whole lot of things, including a train line. They still do not have their train line, and many of them are stranded because they bought in expecting a train line to be built by the then Labor government and yet here we are, 15 years later, and they still do not have a train line. A local group, the Aurora Community Association transport working group, headed by Tony Francis, has put together a strong document that presents a case for building a train line to Epping North and on to Wollert. My constituency question to the Minister for Public Transport is: can the minister tell me when the commencement of the train line to Epping North and Wollert will occur?
