I understand how important access to public transport is for so many residents in the South. As the population of Southern Adelaide continues to grow, access to rail is particularly important in ensuring people in Southern Adelaide are well-connected with the rest of metropolitan Adelaide and the CBD.
That is why I have been fighting to extend the rail line to Aldinga.
I, along with Leon Bignell the State Member for Mawson, have regularly raised this issue with all levels of Government. I am pleased the State Government has now put this Aldinga rail extension forward in their submission to Infrastructure Australia.
Now we need to ensure this project is a priority and we secure funding for it.
I fought hard to secure funding under the previous Federal Labor Government to extend the rail line to Seaford.
I have seen the benefit the Seaford rail extension has had for thousands of people in Southern Adelaide who now have better access to public transport.
Help me fight to get the rail line extended to Aldinga. You can join my fight by completing my petition below.
