The Maroondah Journal, as part of its election coverage has examined the issues relevant to the new Mullum Ward.
Cr Alex Makin said the Government commitments must go further to ensure accessible public transport. “The ramps at Ringwood Station fail disability compliance standards,” he said.
While the State Government announced $39 million to redevelop the station forecourt and bus interchange, it has failed to deliver the funding necessary to create an accessible station that can be used by all people within our community.
Advocacy for the redevelopment of Ringwood Station so it becomes a safe and accessible transport interchange is one of my priorities over the next four years. In addition the relocation of North Ringwood Community House, Ringwood Aquatic Centre and improving the accountability and sustainability of council are also my priorities should I be re-elected.
We need to continue making a difference and ensure that Maroondah becomes an accessible and sustainable municipality.
