Peta Murphy with Labor spokeswoman on infrastructure Catherine King at Kananook station.
Dunkley federal Labor MP Peta Murphy has called on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to apologise to the community after the Federal Government scrapped plans for 100-space commuter carparks at Seaford and Kananook stations.
Ms Murphy said the promise of more carparks was made just months before the 2019 federal election, with $7 million pledged for each of the two stations. “In February 2019, Scott Morrison said about the project: ‘This will get thousands of cars off the roads and get people home sooner and safer. . . this is something that Melbourne people have said is a significant priority’. This broken promise will leave locals disappointed. It just shows that it was an announcement without any consultation or plan for delivery.
“It isn’t good enough for Scott Morrison to constantly make announcements and then not deliver. Announcements are just political set pieces; delivery is all that matters. The Morrison Government owes our community an apology. We don’t need more blame-shifting and shirking of responsibility.”
