Casey residents are invited to ask questions, raise concerns or share their ideas about local transport issues at the Casey Metropolitan Transport Forum (MTF) next month.
The free event, which is organised by the MTF, will be hosted by the City of Casey at Bunjil Place on Wednesday 19 October.
Community members will hear the transport plans of the major political parties and will be able to direct questions to the panel of speakers, which will include:
Brad Battin, State Liberal MP for Gembrook
Michael Galea, Labor candidate for South-Eastern Metropolitan Region
Alex Breskin, Greens candidate for the South-Eastern Metropolitan Region
City of Casey Administrator Cameron Boardman will chair the event.
“We know that transport issues are very important to our community, so we encourage residents to come along to this event to ask their transport-related questions and hear what the State election candidates have to say,” Mr Boardman said.
“Community feedback and our own strategic planning has informed us that the top three areas in which the community wants to see more investment are roads and public transport, local job opportunities, and health services and facilities.
“As part of our Connecting Casey advocacy campaign, we are calling for the projects and services our community needs and deserves. This includes construction of critical road and rail infrastructure such as Thompsons Road upgrade and extension, Clyde Road Corridor upgrade, and Clyde Rail Link.”
