Comments attributed to Shadow Minister for Public Transport David Hodgett:
Daniel Andrews and Jacinta Allan have created a train wreck on Victoria’s regional rail network.
Daniel Andrews’ and Jacinta Allan’s bungled handling of the chaos on V/Line is costing taxpayers $4 million per week and all we get from them is more excuses and blaming others.
The buck stops with Daniel Andrews.
If Daniel Andrews had not wasted $1.1 billion on scrapping the East West Link, he could have bought 90 V’Locity carriages.
Geoff Howard and Sharon Knight should be standing up for Ballarat instead of making excuses for Daniel Andrews.
