Excellent news from V/Line and a much needed addition to Bendigo. Having a single bio wash (as we have mentioned previously) on the network is completely insufficient.

1. Stand by for the nimby objections
2. Kangaroos are seriously stupid animals.

The biowash is planned to be built on what is essentially old industrial wasteland between the Shopping Centre and the Myrtle St Bridge.  I doubt they'll be nimby objections.

IIRC this industrial land formed a part of the old yard which was removed for the shopping centre.




The location is on the opposite side of the carriage sidings so a few movements to the UP and then via the yard lead to the new wash?

Is Bendigo Marketplace or the station going to extend the carpark at all? it's very hard as it is to get a park at the very rare occasions when I have to go there. Usually I park on the Kangaroo Flat side of the Market place and walk thru the shops to get to the station, then I feel obligated to buy something at the shops.

I wish I share your hope.

NIMBY happens with anything that serves the greater public good .

Some twit will object to the potential odour from the wildlife remnants on the train before it gets treated. Probably because they drive past there on the way to do their weekly shop and don't want to be offended by the the mere thought that a dead animal could be exposed to some washing treatment.

Should Vline have been granted the permission for the facility as yet?
