Premier Andrews announcement of the increase to passenger rail services to Bendigo and Ballarat comes after years of public dissent about the appalling lack of reliability and overcrowding on the regional rail network.
The Minister for Public Transport, Jacinta Allan and Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford were pushed to the side by the Premier in making the announcement.
The other regional rail networks of Shepparton, Bairnsdale, Albury- Wodonga, Geelong Warrnambool, Maryborough, Ararat and Horsham were not offered the opportunity of having an increase and improved rail service, yet these regions have been advocating and lobbying for improved services.
Jacinta Allan and Jaala Pulford are two underperforming and under whelming ministers in the Andrews Government and their electoral seats are in Bendigo and Ballarat.
The miraculous decision to increase passenger services to Bendigo and Ballarat is a prime example of politicians following and not leading.
There is concern in the Andrews Government of a Kennett styled back lash in Regional Victoria at the 2018 election just on the issue of transport alone.
The state of regional rail and the city centric expenditure on rail infrastructure in Melbourne is a contentious issue for the Andrews Government, who still do not have a regional rail policy.
The sudden and arbitrary increase in passenger rail services to Bendigo and Ballarat appears to make a mockery of the consultation process that was engineered by Jacinta Allan across the state.
The increase of passenger rail services to Bendigo and Ballarat are purely to prop up Jacinta Allan and Jaala Pulford and again for the majority of regional rail commuters are ignored and disadvantaged by inadequate, unreliable and overcrowded services.
