Oakleigh: It’s all about the trains


One of Labor’s big-ticket items in the 2014 election was to remove the most congested level crossings on busy train lines, such as the one running through half the length of the Oakleigh electorate. The solution was sky rail – elevating the train line. This has been somewhat controversial as neighbours of the new sky rail have raised privacy concerns. The question is if the major infrastructure project will gain or lose votes for Labor?

Labor MP, Steve Dimopoulos, currently holds Oakleigh with the relatively comfortable margin of eight percent to the Liberal contender Theo Zographos.

More to come.
