• Bike Lanes the full length of Main Road Eltham
    Adding bike lanes to current cycling routes fulfills part of the Victorian Cycling Strategy aim of reducing stress on bicycle routes and assists in establishing better integrated cycling corridors, we ask that the member for Eltham implement cycle lanes along the length of Main Road. Including cycling infrastructure into the planned works at Fitzsimons Lane is the perfect opportunity to satisfy the cycling strategy aim of incorporating improved cycling infrastructure in all major transport projects.

  • Ban NSW buses with automatic access ramps
    The access ramps for these buses never work and are either not serviced or drivers are not trained on how to use them. As a person in a wheelchair that relies on buses for transport, I have often had to wait hours often out in the cold for the next bus in the timetable (sometimes multiple buses) because the ramp doesn’t work.

  • Ban Ben Stokes from coming to Australia
    In 1882 a small group of men from the Colony left for the Motherland and did what no one thought was possible; beat England at their own game, on their home soil. We must do everything in our power to honour this 135 years of history to regain and rightfully hold on to that most holy Urn. The Ashes. Oh and to stop further bloodshed and uninvited guests to our beautiful shores.

  • Save the facade, 185 Castlereagh St
    This iconic 1912 building is part of Sydney’s history. It’s housed The Barley Mo, Cahill’s restaurant, the old Windsor tavern and most recently the Windsor. A building that has had publicity in Sydney newspapers throughout its lifetime. When we can build a 100 story building, why can’t we save the facade of buildings that make our city unique and appealing.

  • Commit funding to resolve Belgrave's parking issues
    Belgrave is the ECONOMIC HEART of the Dandenong Ranges; a town which plays home to many much needed services including Centrelink, the local library, a local cinema, the soon to open Belgrave Community Hub as well as many small businesses and Victoria's premier tourist destination; Puffing Billy. Belgrave township is also located at the END OF THE 'Belgrave' Metro LINE. A consequence of this being that residents from across the Dandenong Ranges, from as far afield as Monbulk, Emerald and Olinda, use Belgrave as a day parking facility whilst commuting to the city. However, as Belgrave commuter numbers has significantly increased - allocated train station parking is at full capacity. Commuters are then forced to park in 'all day' street parking areas - leaving no available parking for customers of the established businesses in Belgrave. Furthermore, Belgrave's parking challenges are being seriously stretched by day visitors to PUFFING BILLY. With significant funding committed by the State Government to develop this local asset, Puffing Billy visitor numbers are expected to increase three fold from 260,000 p.a in 2012 to 484,000 in 2017 and an anticipated 700,000 visitors by 2022. Yet no consideration has been given as to how Belgrave may accommodate this significant increase of visitor numbers and the further pressure placed on on already overstretched parking. The ultimate impact of this lack of parking is that many residents of the Dandenong Ranges ARE UNABLE TO TO VISIT OR SUPPORT THE BUSINESSES OF BELGRAVE. We urge the State Government to urgently commit funding to address this issue by moving the current train station further along the line (behind the Cameo Cinema) thereby freeing up large sections of land for additional parking. In addition, the building of a multi layered carpark upon this land would alleviate this serious problem catering for the growth in Metro commuters and Puffing Billy visitors whilst leaving parking for the customers of Belgrave businesses.

  • Don't widen Wynnum Road at East Brisbane
    Because it is a lot of money to achieve nothing. Poor transport planning of outer suburbs and lack of world class infrastructure leads to ineffective temporary fixes being applied and this one must be stopped. It affects many people in the suburb and tears a community apart. It won't solve the problem for commuters.

  • Make swastikas illegal please
    Apparently it's not illegal to parade around adorned with the symbols of Australia's enemy. People are becoming more brazen with the rise of white nationalist groups in Australia. You've all seen the photos of people on public transport displaying the swastika on clothes and tattoos. It is a deeply offensive symbol and it's probably in everyone's best interest to just ban it in public ay.

  • 'NO' to 11 room boarding house at 213 Bunnerong Rd Maroubra 2035
    1) DA for a 3 storey boarding house containing 11 boarding rooms - potential accomodation for 22 people. 2) PARKING: only 3 parking spots are included. This is not adequate for the number of proposed residents. Parking is already at capacity on Eastmore Place. 3) CONGESTION: additional cars entering and exiting Eastmore Place is a safety issue, and additional vehicle movements pose a risk. Eastmore Place is still technically a laneway, and access is very narrow and does not allow for two cars to enter and exit without difficulty. 4) SECURITY & COMMUNITY SAFETY: Eastmore Place is a family oriented suburban area, with 20+ young children residing on the immediate block. The proposed boarding house has the potential to erode the existing character of the zone through cumulative social effects.

  • Flinders Island Safe Harbour
    Flinders Island is the largest of the Furneaux Group islands located in eastern Bass Strait. It is home to approximately 800 residents who are mostly involved in primary industry as their livelihood. Tourism also forms a significant part of the local economy with visitors reaching the island by air from Launceston or Melbourne. There is a freight service from Bridport that occasionally ferries visitors. The group of 50 islands offers a stunning cruising ground for boaties of all sorts. Spectacular anchorages adorn the island's coast with white sandy beaches and mountainous vistas. However, it is only the most adventurous sailors that visit the island group primarily because the opportunity to obtain shelter in dangerous weather is limited combined with limited access to supplies. There is a wharf at Lady Barron, a beautiful town on the southern end of Flinders Island. This facility is primarily for commercial vessels and does not facilitate secure, safe and comfortable harbouring for pleasure craft. This campaign is to register support for recreational sailors and tourism operators that would be interested in visiting Flinders Island if there was a properly constructed safe harbour and marina available for use during their visit. Several studies have been carried out into the feasibility of a harbour and marina at Lady Barron and each have shown that should it be constructed than it would significantly boost the number of visitors to Flinders Island with subsequent benefits to the local economy and employment. The registration of your support and interest in this proposal will assist us in quantifying this potential and provide further evidence of the projects potential benefits.

  • All aboard. If you can! Make QRs new $4b trains accessible
    People with disability (PWD) in Queensland need your support to ensure their citizen rights are upheld. Trains in there current form will ensure many groups of PWD (vision impairment, physical disability, intellectual disability and autism) will be disadvantaged in both boarding, using facilities and exiting the trains. Taxpayer funded public transport that by its very nature is meant to be a driver for inclusion of citizens into community will instead exclude. 1. The corridor linking a carriage purpose-designed with accessible seating and a toilet is too narrow for most manual and motorized wheelchairs causing some PWD to have to leave the train and re-enter through a different door in order to use the bathroom. A time consuming exercise, potentially dangerous whilst raining, all whilst the train stays to a timetable. 2. The toilet space does not meet the relevant size standards set out in legislation. Meaning it is simply inaccessible to some PWD who use a wheelchair for mobility and a danger to use for others. 3. The location of the guard (who assists a PWD with boarding and exiting the train) will be at the rear instead of in the middle of the train. This is a change from years of the guard being located in the middle of the train so as to intentionally align the guard with the purpose built accessible boarding area on existing station platforms. The new rear location presents potential safety concerns for a PWD being left behind on a platform due to not being seen from a guard location at the end-of-the-train – concerns that are real and potentially life threatening on an unmanned station late at night. These trains are meant for 30-plus years of service, meaning potential generations of PWD missing out on community inclusion. The roll-out will coincide with the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland. The NDIS has been designed to be the foundation of a new era of participation for PWD, and accessible public transport is key to participation in jobs, education, training, social life. The Queensland Government has rolled out “Towards an all abilities Queensland” the new state government plan for disability in Queensland. Its proposed vision is that “Queenslanders of all abilities can live the life they choose.” Given the $4b train design it begs the question, can PWD choose to use a train in Queensland? Should you travel on one of these trains and encounter an issue please contact [email protected] and we will assist you to make a complaint.
