My question is to the Minister for Transport Infrastructure.
On 8 February 2018, Minister Allan told Parliament the Government would work closely with Ouyen Inc and the Ouyen community, capitalising on the benefits of the Murray Basin Rail Project to aid the delivery of the vital Ouyen Intermodal.
However, I understand the Minister has not met with Ouyen Inc in the nearly three years since then. And, last week, the Victorian Government said it is now only prepared to devote another $44 million to the Murray Basin Rail Project notwithstanding that hundreds of millions of dollars are needed even for partial completion.
I therefore ask: what will the Minister be doing to honour her 2018 commitments to Ouyen and to Ouyen Inc, given these will now be severely adversely affected without full completion of the Murray Basin Rail Project?
