Rail project derailed

It follows the Rail Futures Conference in Melbourne last month where Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan acknowledged delays on the second stage of the Murray Basin project had affected stages three and four.

Additionally, upgrades of the passenger rail line at Ballarat had been put under review to determine how the projects would proceed in a way that suited the freight industry.
