There's so MUCH cr@p in this story I hardly know where to start
But I'll start by saying it was the Rudd Government Mk 1 and the former Brumby Labor government that got the RRL funded and underway and it could NEVER have started under the present Abbott/Napthine administrations. The Doncaster, Rowville, Bendigo-Castlemaine-Maryborough-Ballarat-Geelong and Melbourne and Avalon airport lines 'reviews' have proven that.
Moreover Mr Carew, who some readers in this pages will know writes the Minister for Public Transport's press releases is stretching the truth in this press release beyond all bounds of credibility...
Total and utter nonsense.
