Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the money for the South Geelong to Waurn Ponds rail upgrade is delivered.
But it’s not.
Only 6.5% of promised funding will be delivered by the next election and the full amount will not come through until 2028-29.
In our fast growing region, peak hour trains through Geelong are running at 140 per cent capacity and commuters regularly face significant delays and overcrowding.
The federal government needs to bring forward the funding for the rail duplication project, not wait until 2025-26.
Sign our petition telling Scott Morrison to get the rail duplication back on track by bringing forward the government’s funding commitment.
