Tom Elliott backs push from Stonnington Council to include South Yarra in Melbourne Metro Rail

Stonnington Council is calling on the Victorian Government to reconsider the proposed route for the $11 billion Melbourne Metro Rail project.

Councillor Claude Ullin wants the new train line to include South Yarra Station.

The rail line is to run from South Kensington to South Yarra, but does not stop at that suburb’s station despite passing just metres from it.
