Have the Libs provided any details on their regional rail plan ? or was It all just hot air with a few wow factor numbers pulled out of a hat ?Yep, a few wow factor numbers pulled out of their rear end and hope that the public will fall for it. Man, the Ballarat Upgrade alone, which involves the duplication of the line from Deer Park to Melton (20 Kms) and Passing loops at Bacchus Marsh, 1 new station and 3 station re-builds, sans Electrification or new rolling stock is going to cost $500 Million. And Matthew Guy thinks that he can completely re-build 90% of the Regional Passenger network, provide express tracks in the Melbourne area, provide an extra track corridor for Gippsland, which would have to be a tunnel because they do not want SkyRail. Not to mention Electrification, updating of signalling and entirely new rolling stock. For $19 Billion?
An almighty word salad from a party and a leader that just does not have a scooby doo. And when he has admitted as such that he had only just put the proposal in a interview, the question then becomes, is he serious or is he just taking the public for fools. Stick to Demonizing Sudanese Migrants and Muslims, because that makes a much sense as the $19 Billion beef jerky the Coalition is putting out.
