Plans for Australia’s first regional suburban train network are on track with the taskforce’s terms of reference released today.
Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan named Bendigo West Member Maree Edwards as the chair of the Community Consultative Taskforce (CCT).
“Members of the community will be invited by Maree and I to that taskforce and it will include representatives from the council, business and education community and they will be tasked with producing a report... on the demand, the service provisions the community needs and other issues that may be identified,” Ms Allan said.
Plans for trains to operate from 2016. If they can make the report deadline for June 30th then could be possible.
Rollingstock requirements would need review.
Would be nice to include Bridgewater.
