Goodness! What a can of worms. Let me get this straight... so the station that we didn't need, but the big players at Southland wanted (they figured they'd get more punters, therefore more $$$) will in fact attract commuters looking for parking. This will impact on the humble shoppers who will find parking difficult if not impossible, so will be deterred from shopping there (unless they live near the Frankston train line), even though "studies have shown" that most shoppers prefer to take a car if they have one. My local strip shopping centre is looking better all the time - so is the bus. Whoops sorry, got off the track, we were discussing the parking nightmare in surrounding streets which will further be compounded by all this. Yikes!
