Peter Walsh MP:
Rail Freight Advisory Council

If Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan is genuinely committed to making Victoria’s freight rail network as ‘efficient and safe as possible’ Labor should fund upgrades at level crossings on the Maryborough to Mildura line.

The Andrews Labor Government today announced the appointment of a Rail Freight Advisory Council to advise on rail industry issues.

Freight rail is the vital link between Victoria’s producers and ports that send our high quality produce across the world.

But Labor’s slow progress to start work on the $440 million Murray Basin Rail Project and last year’s ridiculous heat restrictions are making it harder for farmers to run their business.

The city-centric Andrews Labor Government is obsessed with looking inwards to Melbourne and regional Victoria is missing out.
