Transport - Australian Sex Party Victorian Policy

Victoria has underinvested in rail infrastructure for decades. Rail infrastructure is poorly maintained and out of date. New growth areas are not provided with adequate public transport infrastructure to meet population demands.

The Australian Sex Party commits to:
  • Put pressure on the incoming government to provide investment and undertake forward-thinking infrastructure projects
  • Advocate that stages One and Two of the Melbourne Metro Rail Tunnel be planned and delivered simultaneously, to realise economic and patronage benefits for the taxpayer, and residents and business of St Kilda Road
  • Call for the separation of Regional and Metropolitan services within the metropolitan network, to facilitate and upgrade of the network to a metro-style system
  • Advocate for the implementation of modern rail technologies, such as Automatic Signalling

“The war on drugs is a war you can lose,” the Prime Minister said. “You may not ever win it, but you’ve always got to fight it.”

This game-changing statement followed a press conference about the release of an Australian Crime Commission report on illicit drugs, which admitted that “despite record seizures and arrests we are still only detecting the tip of the drug iceberg”.
