DR Sharman Stone (MHR, Murray) recently met with the Victorian Minister for Public Transport and Employment Jacinta Allan.

Dr Stone was joined Cathy McGowan (MHR, Indi) to talk about the issues of poor service rail lines between Shepparton and Melbourne and Albury and Melbourne.

“Minister Allan is soon to release the first Regional Network Development Plan for Victoria; many from the Goulburn Valley participated in the consultation,” Dr Stone said.
“The plan should provide the first regional public transport strategy for Victoria.

“Minister Allan was reminded of the poor condition of the rail line, especially between Violet Town and Seymour where canteen staff were taken off at Violet Town and put back at Seymour because of the rough ride.

“As many people know we continue to have problems with train services, including the cleanliness of our trains, the inability to connect to wireless internet, poor air conditioning on trains, late arrival and departure times, stations without PA systems and much more.
