Opposition: cosmetic changes won't fix Ballarat line

Ballarat VLine state govt

The Opposition has hit out at the latest V/Line stats, saying the state government is more concerned with how the trains look.

The Shadow Minister for Regional Public Transport, Steph Ryan, says the latest V/Line stats show a continuing two and a half year stretch of poor performance on the Ballarat Line.

But instead of doing something to tackle the long delays travellers continue to face, she says the Andrews Government is more concerned with the trains' seat fabrics and new carpet.

The Ballarat line last met the set performance target of 92 per cent in October 2016.
