My question is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure and relates to the Bell station redevelopment. It has come to my attention that businesses along High Street between Bell Street and Dundas Street in Preston have not been informed of the impacts of the proposed car park entry and exit of the new Bell station on their businesses. Many of these businesses are struggling to survive due to the ongoing impact of COVID and fear the impact increased car traffic along streets surrounding their businesses will have on pedestrian and bike amenity, safety and thus patronage. Minister, will you stand up for the interests of these struggling businesses and direct the level crossing removal authority to consult with these businesses and consider the alternative route to the station car park on the western side of the railway track?
