I wonder if this has been done as a softener for the Metro Tunnel 1 which does not connect with South Yarra?
South Yarra Station Redevelopment Begins
Passengers will soon find it easier to move between trains and trams at South Yarra Station with the Andrews Labor Government announcing a multimillion dollar upgrade of the busy interchange.
Probably because the state government would like the Greens to keep hold of Prahran in the November election.I think the ALP would probably prefer to win it.
The Greens have three MLA's and five MLC's.
In addition, they hold the Federal Division of Melbourne.
The area that was the Victorian Labor heartland is now a distant memory.
The Greens were also a 'shoe-in' to win the recent Batman federal by-election, however their infighting soon saw that dream evaporate...consequently the seat not only went to Labor, but it's now safer for Labor than was previously the case.
Don't expect the Greens to do sensationally well in November.
