Level Crossings

Mr RICHARDSON — On a lighter note, it was wonderful to join the Premier and the Minister for Public Transport out in Carrum to announce that construction will start by 2018 on the removal of three dangerous level crossings in my electorate, being at Charman Road, Edithvale Road and Balcombe Road. These crossings are a legacy of the past, and this government is getting on with building them for the future. They will improve safety and they will ease congestion. There are over 40 000 vehicle movements through these crossings, and it will make a substantial difference to my community.
