Hodgett: V/Line services

Tuesday 19 January 2016


V/Line services

Today’s cancellation of 67 VLocity trains on the Ballarat, Geelong, Bendigo and Traralgon lines is another example of the Andrews Labor Government’s mismanagement.

The Andrews Labor Government is trying to blame everyone for this chaos, but the buck stops with Daniel Andrews and Jacinta Allan.

This debacle is not only inconveniencing tens of thousands of commuters, but it is costing Victorian taxpayers’ money.

Instead of trying to create a diversion by holding a media stunt in front of a barge on the Yarra River, this government should be focussed on fixing the trains and giving Victorians some answers about when they’ll have this problem fixed.
