WELLINGTON Shire Council has developed a report supporting its bid to increase passenger rail services between Sale and Traralgon.
The report, to be put forward for adoption at tonight's council meeting, sets out the business case to increase services from the current three to six.
Council believes this increase can be accommodated by the extension to Sale of services which currently start and terminate at Traralgon, which has 18 train services to Melbourne each weekday.
The business case points to major projects in Wellington Shire and Latrobe City, such as on TAFE facilities in Traralgon and Sale, works in the energy sector and the proposed expansion of RAAF Base East Sale, as likely to increase demand for rail services.
A previous report commissioned by council calculated that costs to improve infrastructure would be $585,000 with total annual operating costs of $450,000.
This previous report, published last year, said that the current three services was inadequate for residents, business people and students who needed to travel between Sale and the Latrobe Valley.
