Join us for an online forum with community leaders, transport specialists and a representative from our Sustainable Cities campaign to discuss the future of Public Transport in Victoria post Covid-19, and the benefits of Melbourne Metro 2 (MM2).
This pandemic has given us the opportunity to re-imagine how we live. Whilst the Andrews government continues to frame our economic recovery on the Big Build, we must ensure that these major transport infrastructure projects are ones that will benefit our communities, not destroy them.
Public transport is an essential service, key to making cities more accessible, liveable, and resilient to pandemics and climate change.
We want to ensure that the Victorian government moves away from its fixation on mega toll roads, and towards a sustainable city that’s good for our physical and mental health, as well as the planet.
This means building safer bike paths, wider footpaths, accessible public transport, and more transport infrastructure including MM2.
We'll discuss what we want to see from the Victorian government in regards to public transport in Victoria, including potential of MM2 and the benefits of its development.
Jodie Valpied is a community member and activist from No Toxic Soil Group- Bacchus Marsh, whose community will benefit from the MM2.
