Horses for courses HERE’S something you don’t see every day. A horse mingling with guests indoors at a Frankston Arts Centre luncheon. The horse called Princess, who helps transport hearses for Frankston’s Allison Monkhouse funeral services, acted like a princess and was calm and happy to socialise with lunch guests. Fellow horse workmate Cricket also attended the lunch and both animals were perfect guests on their best behaviour. Pictured are Susan Correll and Trevor Nolan getting to know Princess.

Sky rail ‘not ruled out’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au THE state government has declined to dismiss the possibility of a sky rail along the Frankston line as part of its plans to remove eleven level crossings. Labor Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan was asked in Parliament last week by Liberal shadow public transport spokesman David Hodgett

whether the minister will “now categorically rule out future sky rail ever being considered for the Frankston line. Yes or no?”. Ms Allan said the government “will be taking the advice of the experts and the engineers on what is right for each location” and accused Mr Hodgett of “scaremongering” to try to stop Labor separating road from rail at level crossing intersections to ease congestion.

“I cannot find, and Melburnians cannot find, any record of the former Liberal government during its four years starting and finishing one single level crossing,” Ms Allan said. “For four long years it did nothing about one of the most important ways that we can reduce road congestion and run more trains.” The exchange about elevated rail in Parliament came after the state government announced last Sunday

(7 February) that a nine-metre-high elevated rail track will be built along sections of the Cranbourne-Pakenham line as part of a $1.6 billion project to remove nine level crossings. The weekend announcement sparked anger among some homeowners and residents along the Cranbourne-Pakenham line about a lack of community consultation before the sky rail option was finalised. They believe elevated rail will be an eyesore

and noise from passing trains will rise. Frankston councillors have so far opted not to get involved in talks with the state government over any possibility of sky rail along the Frankston line, feeling it is too early to address any concerns over elevated rail since no detailed plans have been released yet (‘Sky Rail a future fight’, The Times 8/2/16).
