My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads regarding the Young Street improvement project in Frankston. VicRoads has commenced remediation works on its previously botched project.
As traders and residents in Frankston know, over the last three years the government has been so-called upgrading Young Street in Frankston, which resulted in bus lanes being constructed which are too narrow, bus parking bays being constructed which are too small and access for emergency services vehicles being blocked. This has now required remediation works, which is putting commuters and traders in Young Street through yet more disruption and pain, like what they experienced through the original project, which led to businesses being shut down and jobs being lost.
So my question to the minister is: will she ensure that compensation is made available to those businesses which are once again being affected as a consequence of this botched project?
