A RAIL lobby group has slammed the recent release of the Destination Management Plan (DMP) for failing to advocate for train services, but the Mildura Tourism chief says the paper was about airing new projects.
The DMP – released last week – mapped out an ambitious plan for a shared vision for the future development and direction of the region.
But North East Rail Alliance (NWRA) committee spokesperson Marcus Frenks said it was concerning the 14-page DMP report did not mention rail or train, and only mentioned “transport” twice.
“Other regional centres and their local councils are ramping up their push to have train services increased or reinstated,” Mr Frenks said.
“Horsham is a great example of a local council, business groups and local community groups working together towards that goal.
“It beggars belief that with the state government committed to investing money in the upgrade of the Mildura line that the Mildura council and Mildura Tourism have completely ignored the opportunity to provide another option for people to travel to and from the region.”
