Great to see such a good turnout.  Also good to see some local members from the Victorian Parliament.  Let's hope something breaks shortly and this project can go ahead.

At the very least Geelong to Maryborough.

While it sounds like a good idea, is it really that necessary? I can think of at least 15 more public transport projects that the money could be better spent on.

Always an interesting exercise. The difference with this project is the community support and their voice telling the government what they think is important to them, not what the government thinks is important.

This is a turning point.

East West Link is similar in that the public are advising the government hey do not want their money being wasted on another dud road project.

Abbott is not a leader who listens to the people. Napthine is the same.

I suppose so. I guess it just comes down to priorities.
