About Sky Rail

We are opposing the development of a Sky Rail along the Frankston train line. We believe that a Sky Rail will:

  1. Create an unnecessary visual bulk.
  2. Negatively impact neighborhood character.
  3. Overshadow property.
  4. Create a place for anti-social behavior and crime. For example, an increase in the risk of vandalism, graffiti, dumping of cars and rubbish.
  5. Have a catastrophic impact to small businesses. For example, local shops and cafes may be forced to close.
  6. Increase noise due to the large concrete structures and overhead wires, more than two stories high.
  7. Lead to a decrease in property values.
  8. Lead to a reduction in daylight, which may contribute to health issues within the community.

We do support:

  • The removal of dangerous and congested level crossings.
  • An underground solution.

This petition is signed by the residents of Bayside Council, Kingston Council and Frankston Council. This encompasses the Victorian electorates of Sandringham, Mordialloc, Carrum and Frankston. It also combines the Federal electorates of Goldstein, Isaacs and Dunkley.

The Petition

This Petition will be sent to:

The Legislative Council of Victoria.

No Sky Rail

The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council, the risks and issues relating to the removal of Level Crossings on the Frankston train line. We the Petitioners highlight to the Legislative Council of Victoria that the Sky Rail will:

  • Negatively impact neighborhood character.
  • Create a visual bulk, overshadow property and reduce daylight.
  • Attract crime and anti-social behavior including vandalism, graffiti and dumping of rubbish.
  • Decrease property values.
  • Increase noise to the surrounding community.
  • Have a catastrophic impact on small businesses.

The Petitioners therefore request that the Premier of Victoria and the Government immediately rule out a Sky Rail for the Frankston Line and ensure that level crossings at Cheltenham, Mentone, Edithvale, Bonbeach, Carrum, Seaford and Frankston are placed underground. The Petitioners also request that the community is property consulted regarding potential upgrades to infrastructure at stations where level crossings are not being removed, such as Parkdale and Mordialloc.
