State commitment a huge step forward for North East rail line
Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has welcomed the commitment from Victorian Premier the Hon Daniel Andrews to work in partnership with the Commonwealth Government on the North East rail line.
“It’s all about the sequence,” said Premier Andrews, who met with Ms McGowan today in Wangaratta following the funding announcement for North East Health.
“As soon as the Commonwealth commit to funding to repair the track, we will do our part.”
“This commitment is a huge step towards people in North East Victoria getting the passenger rail they deserve,” said Ms McGowan.
“In the meantime, I look forward to working with the State and Commonwealth ministers and agencies to do the detailed planning and budgeting, beginning with a roundtable meeting.”
