One of the major issues facing Clifton Hill residents is the East-West toll road tunnel. If allowed to go ahead it will wreck homes and the community in the southern end of the suburb.
Traffic and rat-running is an issue in the area but this $8 billion project will not help. In fact it may make some streets worse as people try to avoid the tolls.
Stephen has done a lot of work helping to mitigate rat-running but the only real way to stop it is to expand public transport in the outer suburbs so that people are not always forced to drive.
Stephen has been a passionate advocate for the public housing residents in Clifton Hill, concentrated mainly around Noone Street. Having a pro public housing MP in the parliament would only help strengthen this representation.
