Lydiard crossing closure hits 500-day mark


The member for Western Victoria has slammed the government's inactivity at the Lydiard rail crossing, which has now been closed 500 days today.

She says work on a temporary solution will star next month, not this month as was previously announced.

She says the Ballarat people should rise up in anger.

"The businesses of Ballarat have had to endure 500 days of a main street closed off," she said.

"It's unconscionable."
