METRO RAIL PROJECT SUBMISSIONS
The Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) has published its Environmental Effects Statement and the draft response by the City of Melbourne can also be accessed at the following URL by clicking on this link:
It provides useful information about the proposed Domain Station, and the course of the project through South Yarra. The document will be considered by Council at its meeting next Tuesday 5th July as the submission must be lodged by 6 July. Review the index at the beginning of the document to see the several areas relevant to South Yarra.
The MMRA will be holding a public inquiry on these issues in August/September this year.
There is little more that can be done before the Public Inquiry, but remember that as a result of our and other submissions, we now have the MMRA assurance that Fawkner Park will not be involved in the tunnelling process.
We have requested a senior MMRA representative come to our Annual General Meeting
on 17th November to provide us with more information about how
the construction phase is likely to impact upon residents of South Yarra.
