Public transport infrastructure will get a $192 million boost, including $90.5 million to upgrade and replace signalling, sleepers and ballast on regional tracks to ensure smoother commuter trips and quicker freight movement.
This adds up to $192m. Signalling could be Bendigo?
Another $62.6 million will be spent improving the maintenance of tram and V/line rolling stock, and $23.3 million will be used to upgrade 15 railway stations and stops with new toilets, better seats and improved disability access.
This adds up to $86m. In total $278m. Yes you guessed it 10% of the total amount of funds allocated at a time when the system needs much much more.
