Briefing next week on North East Rail Corridor upgrade
Federal Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan will seek an update on the status of the North East rail corridor during a briefing in Benalla on Monday.
Ms McGowan will join other key stakeholders at the briefing convened by the Victorian Transport Minister Jacinta Allan and the Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes.
“I look forward to hearing the Victorian Government’s plans to improve the experience for passengers on the North East line,” Ms McGowan said.
“I have also called upon V/Line to make public an interim plan for the delivery of services on the North East rail line while upgrade works are underway.
“I’m hoping Monday’s briefing will provide an indication of the format and timetable of the community consultation that must follow the public release of the scope of works for the rail line upgrade.
“It is also an opportunity to get together after this week’s announcement of the new Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Michael McCormack.
“I have written to Minister McCormack seeking a meeting with him and his staff as soon as possible to discuss the status of the North East rail track upgrade.”
