Sign the petition to prioritise Melbourne Metro rail over the Eastern road tunnel
Melbourne Metro is the key to expanding Melbourne’s rail network, enabling new lines and more frequent services across the city.
Without Melbourne Metro
- There can be NO new lines to Doncaster, Monash Rowville, Tullamarine or the new suburb of Fishermans Bend
- Passengers will be left behind at stations as trains reach peak-hour capacity
The proposed Western Link from the Port of Melbourne to the Western Ring Road offers a freight transport alternative to the West Gate Bridge, moving trucks off suburban streets and the projected expansion of the Port of Melbourne.
Without the Western Link
- Truck numbers in inner West suburban streets will continue to grow
- The expansion of the Port of Melbourne will be limited.
Support our campaign if you want:
> More frequent trains and new lines to Doncaster, Monash-Rowville and Tullamarine
> Fewer trucks on suburban streets, especially in the inner West
> Employment and economic benefits from major infrastructure projects
> Better road and public transport for Melbourne
