“We purchased the property with the idea to build a dwelling at the rear and to run it as a bed and breakfast,” Mr Foster said. “This certainly gives us an opportunity to restore the church as it was, fill it with furniture, and keep the original framework and integrity of the building. This will give the public a chance to

A 1000-space commuter park and ride next to a Langwarrin station has been mooted. Other extension benefits include freeing up car parking in Frankston’s CBD that is taken by train commuters, creating a reliable backbone for public transport in the region, and getting cars off congested arterial roads and Monash Freeway.

Schools ‘ignored’ SCHOOLS in around Hastings have been ignored by the “arrogant” Andrews Labor government, according to Hastings Liberal MP Neale Burgess. Mr Burgess said yesterday (Monday) the government had “failed, once again, to address the urgent need for funding to local schools within the Hastings electorate”. While the 2018-19 budget did not contain “one extra cent” for schools in his electorate it “poured billions into seats held by marginal Labor MPs”. Mr Burgess accused the government of “politicising local schools” at a time when there was “an urgent need of funding right across our region, particularly areas that have ageing buildings, safety issues or major growth”.

THE federal government has promised $225 million to extend the metropolitan train line from Frankston to Baxter. The money is due to be announced in the federal Budget tonight (Tuesday 8 May by Treasurer Scott Morrison, part of $7.8 billion for new roads and rail lines in Victoria. Other projects include North East Link tollway between Greensborough and Bulleen, a rail line between Monash University’s Caulfield and Clayton campuses, the Airport Rail Link, duplication of the rail line between South Geelong and Waurn Ponds, and duplication of Princes Hwy between Traralgon and Sale. Electrification of the line between Frankston to Baxter was first proposed in the 1920s. The first “Frankston line” service – Caulfield to Mordialloc – opened in 1881 and the line reached Frankston the following year but was not electrified until 1922. The line to Baxter was opened in 1888 and used steam and later diesel locomotives including to this day. Two lines starting at Baxter were added in 1889 – to Mornington (closed 1981) and to Stony Point via Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings, Bittern and Crib Point. The federal government provided $3 million to the state government last year to prepare a business case, which is expected to be completed by early next year. Proponents of the line are asking for a new station to service Frankston Hos-
