The Andrews Labor Government can’t walk away and leave the Murray Basin Rail Project half done.
Producers and stakeholders should be reaping the benefits of a completed Basin Rail project by now.
But under Labor’s mismanagement, the project is stalled and out-of-money and the damning feedback from key stakeholders is that “we were better off before the project started”.
It was the worst kept secret in regional Victoria that this project went off the rails, but Daniel Andrews and his Minister for Excuses Jacinta Allan did nothing to fix it.
The Victorian Government was required to submit a revised business case to the Federal Government by the end of last year that outlines how the final stages will be completed.
Farmers in north-west Victoria rightly expect Daniel Andrews will keep his promise to complete the Basin Rail project – in full.
