The VFF says there is no reason for the Victorian Government to withhold the Murray Basin Rail Project's revised business case, and if it does the government risks condemning the project to years of further delays and setbacks.
VFF Grains Group president Ashley Fraser said it was long overdue that farmers and industry get to see the revised business case, agreeing with Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack, who called for Victorian Transport Infrastructure Minister Jacinta Allan to immediately release the revised business case.
“Minister Allan has previously said she wouldn't release the project's business case without the support of the Federal Government,” Mr Fraser said.
“Given Minister McCormack’s support, we fully expect the revised business case to be released now.
“While it's very disappointing the project received no funding in the federal budget, it is fair enough for the Federal Government to expect feedback from stakeholders on the business case for the project.
“As a result, the Victorian Government has no alternative other than to release the details of the stalled project now, to ensure there's time to scrutinise the details ahead of the state budget.”
