Liberals act to prevent Daniel Andrews’ destruction of the heritage boulevard along St Kilda Road
The Federal Liberals have pointed to the national significance of St Kilda Road and it’s remarkable boulevards and acted to put emergency protections in place.
This will put immense moral pressure on Daniel Andrews to stop his unrestrained destruction through uncontrolled preliminary works on Melbourne metro rail project.
It’s time Andrews stepped back – our heritage is too precious to be sacrificed by his vandalism.
We need the metro project but it needs proper planning controls and heritage protections.
It needs a deep tunnel construction and not an open cut. Nearly 10,000 people have signed a petition asking for Domain Station to be tunnelled, not dug out.
See the Federal Government statement by Environment Minister Josh Freydenberg here.
