Minister Chester commitment to ride NE rail line welcome
Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has welcomed the news that Minister for Transport Darren Chester will ride the North East rail line.
“It’s great that the government is responding at last to the repeated calls to do something urgently about the poor service on the Wodonga line.”
“The decision to ride the line is a good one, but the most important decision will be to provide the much needed investment in rail infrastructure.”
Ms McGowan wrote to Minister Chester and State Transport Minister Jacinta Allan in January calling for a meeting to resolve the problems with rolling stock and track quality.
“I also met with Minister Chester in October to discuss rail services in the North East so his visit is long overdue.”
