A No Frills or Premium Station on the Frankston Line?

Construction of a new railway station on the Frankston line is finally underway but the budget for the station is still being debated by the Coalition and the Labor party. The Coalition wants to build what it calls a ‘no frills’ station at Southland and has allocated $21 million. However, Labor wants to create a ‘premium’ station and is prepared to spend $45 million on facilities for the expected 4500 commuters. Either way, the station is predicted to become the fourth busiest on the Frankston line as Samantha Cornehls reports.
