REGIONAL PRIORITIES

Railing Ahead Community Survey

Results of the Railing Ahead community survey show that the people of the Swan Hill region have a clear message for the Victorian Government – improved passenger rail services for northern Victoria is a key priority. Almost 1000 survey responses were received in relation to the Swan Hill and Echuca rail services.

The Railing Ahead survey highlighted that community members of northern Victoria rate passenger rail as their preferred form of public transport and have indicated a strong desire for much improved rail services.

Ninety-seven percent of respondents said they would be more likely to use regional trains if the service was improved, with more frequent services, more convenient timetables and more return services on the same day, being the main influencing factors.
