Major upgrades on the:
-Ballarat and Gippsland corridors
Various of other minor upgrades on the:
-Warrnambool section, Shepparton, North East corridors
South Geelong-Waurn Ponds duplication
Ongoing upgrade with bipartisan support:
Murray Bassin Rail project
Melbourne to Brisbane Freight link
To say they haven't done good enough time for election, has the opposition have a plan for upgrading rail? No, just there 55 grade seperate road project.
Currently the Victorian Libs are anti-rail.
1) against skyrail
2) against the stabling improvements at Kannanook
3) against the metro tunnel, just because there is no connection at south yarra
4) will do anything to get their east west road project as no. 1 priority
5) Announce a major road program and advertise it that it would reduce congestion
Labor is still guilty for major road projects
-West Gate Tunnel (suprise deal with Transurban)
-North East Link (super expensive since it is sketchy with details)
But major regional rail upgrades are coming, and will only happen under current gov agenda. Unfortunately the opposition doesn't have a better plan.
Regional Rail Alliance will contest State Election
