Southern Metropolitan Region

My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport, Ms Allan, who is responsible for the level crossing removals, and it relates to the site at the North Road rail station at Ormond.
That level crossing removal was of course funded by the previous coalition government.
As part of that project the Andrews government, without consultation with the local community, plans to build a 13-storey sky tower at the site. In preparation for the development a huge concrete slab was poured which covers an extensive area. This concrete pad is not being utilised for anything at the present time, so I ask the minister, while it is not being utilised, to consider allowing it to be used for parking for commuters and others who access the Ormond station or the surrounding Ormond shopping precinct.
