Strathbogie sees rail precinct prospect

Constituency question

September 8, 2021

My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport and concerns the Euroa railway precinct:

The Inland Rail project will have implications for the greater railway precinct, which falls outside of the scope of the ARTC (Australian Rail Track Corporation) and into the hands of the state government. 

This presents an opportunity for the precinct to be considered in a holistic sense for rail and road users, pedestrians and cyclists. 

Strathbogie Shire Council is very keen to engage with the Victorian government to ensure that the planning, funding and timing for a redevelopment of a Euroa railway precinct is collaborative and includes the community.

I ask the Minister if he will meet with the Strathbogie council to discuss these issues and opportunities and their need for $100,000 funding to develop a business case for the Euroa railway precinct.
