News article: Millions of dollars earmarked for Bendigo projects up in air, including airport, showgrounds

PROMISES for the Bendigo Airport expansion and the showgrounds have come to naught in the aftermath of Labor's election defeat.

The Coalition did not have a policy at all for the people of regional Victoria not a single rail project in that list around Bendigo.  Why?

No money for track upgrades or stations, nothing for the Goldfields Railway nothing driving community.

If it is worthwhile then maybe she might get the PM's ear. If it can create jobs and is worthwhile I see no reason why the libs would say no.

I suppose there's still the Echuca rail line upgrade and signalling changes as part of the Regional Rail Revival project.  But Bendigo is no longer a marginal Federal seat (it's gone Communist), so why would anyone decide to pork barrel it anymore?

Do we have a date for the completion of the echuca upgrades and does this include additional VLOCITY services between Bendigo and Echuca over the 4 as per day?

Did the Feds fund any Bendigo Metro works?

The last I heard was 2020 for the Echuca line component, and 2022 for Bendigo area signalling.  And yes, there should be an extra service (Morning Down, Afternoon Up) if V/line can fund it.

The extra services introduced a few years ago for Bendigo "Metro" was all State funded I believe (2014 State election promise).
