Bus network upgrades ruled out until interchange works finalised

Ballarat bus

State Minister for Transport, Melissa Horne, says upgrades to Ballarat's bus networks will be on the backburner until upgrade works at bus interchanges have been completed.

It comes after calls made by the City of Ballarat to the State Government to overhaul Ballarat's local bus system yesterday.

Minister Horne however says that waiting for the interchanges to be upgraded first will provide a catalyst for local bus services to improve. 

Upgrade works to bus interchanges in Ballarat are projected to be finalised by the end of the year.
