Members Statement - Brighton North Gas Supply


Thursday, 3 September 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

After dragging their feet Multinet Gas have begun work to repair infrastructure that will provide 60 Brighton North residents with gas when it rains.

For the last year the infrastructure has degraded to the point of stopping delivery after every downpour. Victoria is suffering from the pandemic, but we are also locked into our homes, and access to essential services is paramount.

The issue was raised with the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, without response. And the Labor upper house member for the region, Nina Taylor, publicly mocked the fact that residents were left without a gas supply.

After media intervention, works are now underway.
