The Victorian Opposition says most of the run-down rail freight lines servicing the state's grain belt will not qualify for an upgrade under funding announced yesterday.
National party leader Peter Ryan says the funding is welcome, but does not address the problem of there not being enough rolling stock to service Victoria.
He says the $42 million announced by the State Government is less than a third of the spending recommended in a report on the state's rail network.
Mr Ryan says there is an urgent need for the work to begin because with the right conditions Victoria can expect a huge grain harvest.
"That will be a mammoth task for the transport industry so let's do what this report undertakes," he said.
"As far as it goes, yes it is welcome, but understand it is very much just a part completion of what the overall project requires."
