The first Tuesday of February marked the first meeting of the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) South East for 2007.
The South East Branch is now a recognised branch of the PTUA with June Whitton appointed as a convenor. Being recognised as a formal branch the PTUA South East will be able to forge its own identity and clearly represents the needs and priorities of Melbourne’s south eastern residents.
Prominent among these priorities will be a campaign to restore staff to Noble Park and Hallam Stations and to improve rail and bus services within Melbourne’s fast growing south east. Public transport services are inadequate for current needs let alone to meet the projected growth that is to occur within this region of Melbourne.
The PTUA South East Branch will ensure that Melbourne’s south has a local and vocal presence in ensuring that much needed public transport services are delivered to this fast growing region.
