Ballarat line upgrades on track for completion later in year


The State Government has denied that the Ballarat line will see delays as upgrade works continue.,

Concerns first started when a date listed in the budget papers for the 2019-20 financial year, where the completion date was projected to be the fourth quarter of the 2019-20 financial year, or in a year's time.

That date in the budgetary papers is six months later than the date currently listed on the website of Regional Rail Revival. 

However the claims that the upgrades will be delayed have been dismissed by the Director of Regional Rail Revival, Mark Havryluck, who says the construction of the project is on track to be completed by the end of the year.
