As part of this advocacy project, Council is erecting four signs in strategic locations around the municipality, as our way of advocating for Federal Government funding for these major public transport infrastructure projects.
Knox City Council has a long history of advocating for Rowville Rail, and has been successful in getting the project on the State Government agenda. They have determined that Rowville Rail is feasible; however, the State Government believes it must wait until the Melbourne Metro is complete.
With Federal Government assistance, this timeframe could be brought forward as both projects could be built concurrently.
The State Government can do its part by enacting planning processes now to protect the future use of this multi-modal corridor. There is no impediment to commencing this work immediately.
