Given his historical connection to Carnegie, and previous track record in opposing a high rise development of Camberwell Station, perhaps Barry Humphries will do the same for a similar proposal for our station.
The Age has reported that as part of the plan to remove level crossings like that on Koornang Road, the re-build of the station could well involve some sort of high-rise development (The Age quotes an academic suggesting a 15-storey tower would be appropriate at nearby Murrumbeena station!). This is something that may even have support on council (see comments on this post on the Glen Eira Debates blog).
Almost 90 years ago the good residents of Carnegie fought to keep the parkland area around the station from shop development. Will it now be lost? Will commuters still be able to look out at the gum trees and imagine they are in a forest?
