My adjournment request is to the Minister for Public Transport. The action I seek is for the Minister to instruct the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) to undertake proper consultation with regard to reinstating the indented pick‑up and drop‑off zone at Forster Street near Heatherdale station as depicted in the architectural design pictures dated June 2015.
My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Why has the minister not addressed in his response to my adjournment matter 14403 the request for the opportunity for cars to do a U-turn on Maroondah Highway between the EastLink off ramp and the Heatherdale Road and Dampier Grove intersection. My adjournment highlighted the need for it, but the minister has not referred to it in his response, and I would like to know why.
Ms RYALL - My adjournment request is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. The action I seek is to have a full road safety review at peak before and after school times on Mitcham Road between Springfield Road and the Mitcham Bowling Club. The review needs to ensure that flashing 40‑kilometre signs are installed on Mitcham Road outside Mullauna College. Mullauna College and Mitcham Primary School are next to each other and share a pedestrian crossing on Mitcham Road outside Mitcham Primary School.
Ms RYALL - My constituency question is for the Minister for Health. My question is: why does my constituent who is a pensioner have to wait more than 15 months to access the public dental service to receive attention for her chipped and damaged teeth?
Ms RYALL - My adjournment request is for the Minister for Sport, and the action I seek is for the minister to fund Mitcham sporting club to enable a contribution to a newly constructed modern clubroom facility that also caters for girls and women, one that can rapidly meet the growing sporting community needs at Walker Park in Nunawading now and into the future.
Ms RYALL - My request goes to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and the action I seek is for the minister to implement a pedestrian crossing on Maroondah Highway close to the vicinity of Everard Road in Ringwood so that residents of Ringwood Area Lions Aged Care (RALAC) Lionsbrae and others in the area catching the bus on Maroondah Highway can do so safely.
Ms RYALL — The matter I raise is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. The action I seek is for an urgent review of the intersection of Maroondah Highway, Heatherdale Road and Dampier Grove on the border of Mitcham and Ringwood to ensure the following: increased pedestrian crossing time from north to south across Maroondah Highway, as currently there is insufficient time to complete the crossing in the time allowed; red and green turning arrows for cars exiting Heatherdale Road and turning right onto Maroondah Highway; red and green turning arrows for cars exiting Dampier Grove and turning left into Maroondah Highway; and flashing pedestrian warning signs. There also needs to be an opportunity for cars to do a U‑turn on Maroondah Highway between New Street, Ringwood, and the Heatherdale Road and Dampier Grove intersection.
Ms RYALL— A big shout-out to our local Chinese community, who celebrated the Lunar New Year — the Year of the Dog — with a spectacular showcase of Chinese culture, fabulous food and activities at Box Hill. Well done to the Asian Business Association of Whitehorse and all volunteers.
Ms RYALL - My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport. The land opposite the Heatherdale railway station in Heatherdale Road, where so many have to park to catch the train, is currently for sale. If the minister does not buy the land, where will these people park?
Ms RYALL — The Mitcham community came together in February to raise funds for ovarian cancer research. Mama's Afternoon Tea was a great afternoon hosted by the Innes family with fantastic food, fun and laughs. Early detection of ovarian cancer is vital with 1580 women expected to be diagnosed this year and 1047 expected to die this year from this horrid disease. It is always encouraging to see local groups in our community raising awareness and funds for this cause.
