Rail Transport and New Seat Margins

The swing in several Legislative Assembly electorates on the Frankston rail corridor to the Liberal Party helped deliver victory to the Liberal National Coalition at the 2010 Victorian State Election. These seats remain some of the most marginal at this election after the recent realignment of electorate boundaries, and are the ones to again watch on 29 November 2014. They include the seats of Bentleigh, Mordialloc, Carrum and Frankston.

This site presents new and proposed rail infrastructure in relation to assessed new Legislative Assembly seat margins presented in the form of colored dots. The bigger the dot the more marginal the seat and vice versa, where the dot color indicates the party assessed to have held the new seat (had the 2010 election been held on the new seat boundaries).

About the data

Information on new electorate seat margins presented on this map is based on a report produced by Antony Green, 2013 Victorian Redistribution Analysis of New Electoral Boundaries.

Rail infrastructure information shown on this map is sourced from various fact sheets by interest groups, political party press releases, state and local government web-sites, and other publically available planning documents. The nature of these documents is that they are evolving, and at times conflicting, and we have endeavoured to present what we understand to be the most current and accurate view of the material provided. The current rail network is sourced from publically available PVT information.
