Full interview: Victorian treasurer Tim Pallas in the studio with Neil Mitchell

The Andrews Government won’t rule out sky rail being used to remove other level crossings across the state.

A controversial plan has been unveiled to remove nine level crossings by elevating the Cranbourne-Pakenham line.

The project will cost $1.6 billion – significantly less than putting rail under the road, which was proposed by the former government at a cost of $2.5 billion.

Residents on the Frankston line fear they too will receive a sky rail, and Treasurer Tim Pallas did little to allay those concerns on while talking with Neil Mitchell this morning.

‘All design solutions will be considered,’ he said.

Earlier, Neil Mitchell tackled Mr Pallas over a lack of consultation with residents.
