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.
