ETC Chairperson Cr Samantha Dunn said that the State Government’s announcement to fund the Regional Rail Link and Melbourne Metro would be disappointing to residents of Eastern Melbourne suburbs.

“While more transport planning is desperately needed in the outer East, we keep seeing public transport funds being directed to the same groups of electorates,” Cr Dunn said.

“ETC recently submitted a petition on behalf of more than one million residents in the East who want better transport options. It’s time the government stopped neglecting the East on transport policy,” she said.
