North Melbourne: Invitation to Attend the Melbourne Transport Forum

The Brumby Government is preparing a major transport plan for Melbourne and regional Victoria. This plan, which will be released by the end of the year, will provide a strategy for not only Melbourne’s east and west, but also for our northern and south-eastern suburbs as well as regional Victoria.

To develop a plan that will apply to the diverse needs and aspirations of all Victorians I am contacting local organisations and groups with an interest in Melbourne’s transport future. The purpose of the consultation is to provide an opportunity to learn more about Victoria’s transport challenges, outline the current planning process, raise matters of concern, and identify opportunities for Victoria’s future transport network.

I am interested in your ideas as local community representatives and therefore would like to invite two members of your organisation to attend the Melbourne Transport Forum so we can discuss these important issues. The details of the Forum are provided below.

Date: Wednesday, 27 August 2008
Time: 4.30 – 6pm
Location: 146 – 148 Peel St, North Melbourne, Mel Ref. 2B 10B

To register your attendance, please contact my office via telephone (03) 9328 4637 or email gabriella.aitken@parliament.vic.gov.au by Friday August 22.

I look forward to working with you at the Melbourne Transport Forum. The feedback I receive at this Forum will be considered at a Transport Summit, which will be hosted by the Premier in September.

Invitation – Victorian Transport Forum – Eastern Metropolitan Region

The Brumby Government is preparing a comprehensive transport plan for Victoria that will be released by the end of 2008. This plan will include transport priorities across our State as well as respond to proposals for Melbourne’s east-west corridor outlined in Sir Rod Eddington’s report. It will provide a framework for the delivery of transport projects.

To develop a plan that reflects the diverse needs and aspirations of all Victorians we are consulting with organisations and groups with an interest in transport. The purpose of the consultation is to provide people with an opportunity to learn more about Victoria’s transport challenges, outline the current planning process, raise ideas or issues, and identify opportunities for Victoria’s future transport network.
