Manningham Council will tell the State Government that it wants the North East Link busway project to be built with a view to “transitioning” to Doncaster Rail down the track.
The council, along with other organisations and individuals who made submissions to the freeway’s environmental effects statement, have the chance to voice their concerns at public hearings starting on July 25 in Bulleen.
The submission, worked on by officers and councillors in consultation with the community, touched on several key concerns including the impact on business and sporting communities across the municipality.
The council will also tell the State Government any time commuters save from using the North East Link’s busway project will be lost unless a solution is found to congestion in Hoddle St.
For that reason, they want to see the busway built with a view to eventually replacing it with heavy rail.
Manningham mayor Cr Paula Piccinini said demand for bus services between the municipality and the city was growing.
