My question is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure and relates to the Bell station redevelopment. Minister, the Bell Residents group are extremely disappointed at the way they are being misinformed. The Greens have obtained via a freedom-of-information request documents detailing the traffic assessment of access to the new station car park. Despite the level crossing removal project’s claim to the contrary, the FOI reveals that there was no formal investigation done into the western side car park access, including whether it is safer for the community. Minister, why was the community effectively lied to, and will the minister now ensure an independent traffic safety assessment of station car park access via the western side occurs immediately and is publicly published, including a direct comparison of the safety impacts on the locals to the current plans?
