Concern over proposed telstra tower block would be “unprecedented” and could cause hardship in Melbourne, minister says

Transport Minister Jacinta Allan has defended plans to build a new Telstra tower in Melbourne as she urged community and business groups to remain neutral in the debate and urged the Government to focus on attracting people in the CBD.

Ms Allan said in an interview to ABC News Breakfast that she wanted people to understand the project would not damage Melbourne but she recognised it would raise concerns among some business leaders.

She said the proposed de골드 카지노velopment would be unprecedented in the city’s history and highlighted the fact there was already work already under way to enhance Melbourne’s roads network and infrastructure.

She said one of the challenges was putting all the pieces back together and developing new roads and connections to attract residents to town centres.

“The problem with this project is there is a lot of 수원 출장 안마public support and I think it is important that the community, the business community, work with the Government to make sure that this does not impact on the community or the services that people will use,” she said.

“And I think that will be a challenge because this has not been done before.”

Labor spokesman for public works Andrew Lees said there was concern from business groups about the impact of the project but the Government had not yet decided which businesses should be represented on the project panel.

He said the government had already agreed to hold public meetings on the project, and it understood it would not be a good idea to place community interest ahead of private ones.

“Obviously, if a lot of these business leaders had concerns about the effect on the city’s infrastructure and on jobs, this is a difficult issue because it’s one of th출장e few places in the world where that could happen in terms of investment,” he said.

He said there had been a lot of “constructive discussions” with the government but no firm commitment on the outcome of those talks.
