The Liberal state Member for Northern Victoria, Wendy Lovell, has tabled a petition in Parliament calling on the State Government to fund improved rail services for Shepparton.
Ms Lovell said the petition had been signed by nearly 1,400 people over the past three months, who were unhappy that there had not been some boost to trains since Labor came to office.
She said she wants the Government to allocate the funds in next month's state budget.
"What we know is the Coalition government gave a commitment at the election but unfortunately Labor failed to give any commitment to the seat of Shepparton at the election," she said.
"So we're calling on them to match or better the commitments that were made by the Coalition when they were in government.
"The Labor Party visited Shepparton. Daniel Andrews came up, he had a sizeable entourage with him including the current Transport Minister, Jacinta Allan, and he made noises about putting a sprinter service between Shepparton and Seymour."
