The latest Andrews Labor Government railway timetable for the Ballarat, Ararat and Maryborough lines includes 117 journeys per week that are LONGER than the old timetable. This is despite $500 million being spent on the line. It turns out none of that money was to help regional or country travellers. Instead, it was to open a new Cobblebank Station that slows down journey times even more. Typical behaviour from a city-centric government.
Now, the Andrews Government is planning to make you change trains at Sunshine with its second-rate Airport Rail project. To have a hope of fast trains in the future, we need tunnel built now - not vague promises of after electrification.
SIGN THE PETITION for better rail services to Western Victoria!
The residents of Victoria call on the State Government to commit to future fast rail to Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong by accepting the Federal Government's money to build tunnels as part of a fast airport rail link.
