Tonight’s Eastern Transport Coalition meeting focused on discussing strategies to ensure that public transport remains a key issue in the upcoming year and into the State and Federal elections which are due in 2010.

Maroondah has three key priorities for the municipality, including the redevelopment of Ringwood Station into an accessible, integrated and safe transport interchange, rail improvements and better bus services, including more frequent and readily available bus services.

These priorities were conveyed at tonight’s meeting to shape the priorities of the Eastern Transport Coalition. An action plan will be presented at the next Eastern Transport Coalition which will assist in achieving these objectives.
