Submissions to the Senate Inquiry into the Administration and Expenditure of Funding under the Urban Congestion Fund

A Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Public Administration is conducting an inquiry into administration and expenditure under the Urban Congestion Fund, including an examination of funding under the National Commuter Car Park Fund. The committee is scheduled to report to the Commonwealth Parliament by 2 December 2021. 

This examination by the Committee follows a report by the Commonwealth Auditor-General in June 2021 which found, inter alia, that the approach to identifying and selecting commuter car park projects for funding commitments under the program was not appropriate.   

The Stop North East Link Alliance has made two submissions to the inquiry, on 10 September and 15 October 2021. The submissions pay particular attention to the proposed funding of four commuter car parks in Glenferrie, Camberwell, Canterbury and Surrey Hills in the Division of Kooyong which were announced as “congestion busting” in May 2019 by local M.P., Josh Frydenberg.
