TALK is talk ... speculation is speculation.
But progress is being made.
It’s encouraging to see Member for Mildura Peter Crisp talking about the train, and we’re encouraged by his supportive dialogue with NorthWest Rail Alliance.
He’s also right on the mark when he talks about the major remaining obstacle – level crossings.
To truly deliver for the community, after three terms, it’s time for Mr Crisp to get a commitment from his Liberal-National state colleagues to fully support the remaining steps to returning the passenger train, but no more “studies” – we want actual “steps” that result in a “end product”.
We also call on the State Labor Government (of which the Transport Minister refuses to meet with us despite three meetings with her department) to stop blind-sighting the Mildura community about the passenger train issue.
They need to stop hiding behind the word “freight” and start talking more about “people”.
