On Monday four people from the Upfield Transport Alliance presented the paper version of the petition to Upgrade the Upfield line to the office of Reason Party member of the Legislative Council, Fiona Patten MP. Fiona sits on the crossbench in the Legislative Council and has earned the respect of other MPs from across the traditional political divisions.
Our paper petition had over 3100 signatures. This is the pile of petition sheets. It will be given to parliamentary officers to verify details and cross off duplicate signatures.
This stack of paper? It’s 3000+ Upfield passengers who say:
– 20 / 30 minute train services NOT GOOD ENOUGH
– Daily train turn-arounds at Coburg NOT GOOD ENOUGH
– Constant delayed, cancelled trains NOT GOOD ENOUGH
– METRO TUNNEL? It will NOT FIX THIS!!
