INDI IN THE NEWS
It’s been a BIG week for trains!
Meeting with the Victorian Minister for Transport and Major Projects, Jacinta Allan at Bendigo.
Rail discussions focus on service inequity
Bendigo was the location for discussions this week with the Victorian Minister for Transport and Major Projects, Jacinta Allan, to highlight the inequity of passenger rail services for North East Victoria. The action needed is clear; the Federal Government must fix the Melbourne to Albury rail track, while the Victorian Government needs to commit to funding new trains once that work is complete. The people of Indi will be looking forward to that commitment of significant funds from both governments in their upcoming budgets. The meeting followed a visit to the North East on Monday by Federal Transport Minister Darren Chester, who rode the train from Melbourne to Wodonga.
