Super trains a win for regional Victoria

The Property Council of Australia has welcomed the Victorian Opposition’s announcement of a $19 billion rebuild of the regional railway network.

“We applaud the Opposition’s vision for transforming regional Victoria and spreading growth across the State.

“While the deliverability of this project is challenging given the costings and timeframe proposed, it’s encouraging to see politicians look ahead and show the courage to make tough, long-term decisions to ensure Victoria’s prosperity and liveability.”

“We would urge a Coalition Government, if elected, to engage with industry early during the planning phase to ensure the benefits of this project are maximised. The property industry is ready, willing and able to assist.

“The Opposition’s decentralisation policies create major opportunities for Victoria but we can’t take our eyes off the main game –  which must be our ability to create great cities for current and future Victorians.”
