LETTER: A critical boost

SIR, – Murray Basin Rail Project upgrades will provide a critical boost for our food and fibre producers in northern and western Victoria.
The $440-million project, which has been proudly driven by Victoria’s National Party MPs, reached a significant milestone, with the Maryborough to Ararat line re-opening. It also signals imminent reopening of the Mildura line.
I am proud to have been part of the former Liberal-Nationals government that got this project off the ground in 2014 with a $220-million investment. The federal Liberal-Nationals contributed the final $220-million needed in April 2017.
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to standardise and upgrade freight rail in western and northern Victoria will make it more efficient for our farmers to get their product to port and to the rest of the world.
Peter Walsh, Leader of The Nationals
Member for Murray Plains
Shadow Minister for Regional Victoria and Decentralisation
