Warrnambool Line Funding Highlights Federal Budget
The Warrnambool Line is one of the regions major wins from the Federal Government's budget announcement, with a combined $260 million dollars put forth for stage two of the project.
Member for Wannon Dan Tehan said their $208 million investment would have significant benefits for the region.
"It will see the line further upgraded so it can take VLocity trains, that will see more services and quicker services which is great for the South West community, who have been advocating and campaigning for this" Mr Tehan said.
The project is expected to support 640 direct and indirect jobs based on Australian Government estimates.
