The Count Down is On

Labor has committed that within the first 100 days of the election they will set up the Frankston Station Precinct Task Force

The Frankston Community Coalition congratulates Labor’s Paul Edbrooke on his successful campaign to represent the people of Frankston for the next four years in Victoria’s State Parliament. We are very much looking forward to working with Paul on issues that have been holding back the progress of Frankston.

One of those issues is the urgent need to develop an attractive and safe train station precinct - something that both the Liberal and Labor parties have promised, but not delivered, for Frankston over four decades. This website is rich in information about this persistent failure, so please take time to browse through its pages.

Responding well to community demand, the Labor Party have made the most far-reaching promise to develop the station precinct since 1974. Click here to read this commitment.

As you’d expect from a person who’ll Frankston’s advocate in Spring Street for the next four years, Paul is already on the job. He’s given a maiden speech in which he outlines his vision for Frankston, and what needs to be achieved in the next four years.

In his speech he says: ‘We will soon be taking the next step and seeing the rejuvenation of one of our city’s crucial areas—the train station and the Young Street corridor—under Labor’s $50 million commitment to see Frankston lead the Peninsula into the future. This is the largest commitment to Frankston in many decades and is desperately needed. Any vision for Frankston in the future involves transforming this neglected area first.
Paul has also been on his feet in State Parliament to impress on the new Minister for Transport the need for Labor to live up to its election commitments. These commitments included the following: ‘Within the first 100 days of an Andrews Labor Government, a newly-established Station Precinct Taskforce will commence work on a fast-tracked master plan for the precinct, in consultation with the community
