Macedon electorate rail services

Ms THOMAS (Macedon) – The adjournment matter I wish to raise this evening is for the Minister for Public Transport, and the action I seek is that the minister join with me and visit V/Line commuters in my electorate at one or a couple of the seven V/Line stations in Macedon. I would like the minister to see for herself what an incredible difference the announcement of new V/Line services will make for my constituents. It was fantastic on the morning of 9 May to join with the minister, the Premier and many of my regional colleagues at Southern Cross station where we announced the 142 new V/Line services across the network. These of course are in addition to 80 that were announced in January. The Minister for Public Transport is doing a fantastic job. She has a real passion and a vision for V/Line. It is much appreciated by constituents in my electorate, and I look forward to welcoming her to Macedon soon.
