Eastern Victoria MLC Matt Viney launches a petition to return train services to Rosedale, Sale, Stratford and Bairnsdale from the Sale Railway Station on Thursday.Return our train petition
EASTERN Victoria MLC Matt Viney has been distributing a petition calling for the of return train services to east Gippsland.
“It will be an interesting test to see whether the concern people are expressing to me, which is significant, is reflective of what is actually happening out in the community,” he said.
He said references to train services from Sale to Bairnsdale, and on to Traralgon, had been removed from the new V/Line timetable, which came into effect on Sunday, April 28.
Since the indefinite cancellation of train services on the line in March, because of rust on the tracks affecting signalling, replacement coach services have been running from Bairnsdale to Melbourne in place of trains.
Mr Viney, who was at Sale Railway Station Thursday to launch his petition, believes the line’s rusty tracks occurred as a result of low maintenance funding.
“Less than one per cent of the country rail maintenance funding has been spent on the Bairnsdale line,” Mr Viney said.
“This government has been in office nearly three years and the solution to the problem has been to close the service rather than maintain the line,” he said, making reference to the previous 10 year closure of the line by the Kennett government in 1994.
When rust was discovered on the tracks, it was reported that specialist track grinding equipment was going to be sourced from Western Australia to fix the problem, yet this may no longer be possible.
V/line spokesperson Colin Tyrus assured the Gippsland Times that a track grinder was still coming, but that it might not be the brand new machine from Western Australia which required a gauge change to fit Victoria’s broad gauge track.
He said a track grinder was essential to repairs, so V/Line was in the process of sourcing another machine from RailCorp in New South Wales.
The second machine, Mr Tyrus said, was currently being used by RailCorp to repair one of its lines.
Mr Tyrus said V/Line had put in a bid to use the machine and hoped to find out this week about the application’s progress.
While the line was out of action, he said, crews would continue performing other required maintenance work.
Deputy Premier and Gippsland South MLA Peter Ryan has reassured Gippslanders train services would return.
“I understand the concerns that are being expressed about the trains, and I understand people are being inconvenienced because of the matters that are happening at the present time,” he said.
“As soon as this necessary work has been completed the trains will be back in place.”

Round 13 of the Rod Hampstead Electrical Darts Challenge was played last Monday with the results pretty much going as predicted.
I would just like to say thanks to all the women that showed up to the Women’s championships and Congratulations to Nikkie Ball who took it out this year against Vicki Button.
There will be an extraordinary general meeting on May 13 at 6.30pm at the Federal Hotel.
Everybody is welcome.

WATER use was once a simple affair. Turn on the tap, use what you need; be conscious of your use but not obsessive about it. State governments built dams when they were needed and local councils connected the water.
Then came water meters and you began to pay for the water. At that time, governments decided that the real costs of producing and distributing water needed to be identified and recovered through charges.
Along came a drought and we all realised that water was precious and undervalued and we learnt how to conserve it. We also realised that perhaps we weren’t that well prepared to meet the water demand of a growing population. The state government moved in and set up a water grid to control all water in South East Queensland, taking control of council assets and operations and embarked on a massive spending infrastructure program to drought-proof the region.
Once we did all this, the rain came and we were left with lots of water, unused new infrastructure, a huge debt and bulging water bureaucracy.
And of course along this journey from no water meters to today, the price of water began to increase. At first the increase was a mere trickle and we didn’t even notice it. Now the cost of water is both noticeable and getting to be a double digit percentage of our rates bill.
Part of our water bill now includes the state government on-charging of the bulk water cost which includes a component of the pay back of the money borrowed to build the drought-proofing water infrastructure yet it is paid through your water rates.
Along the way, local government discovered water was a potential source of revenue that would take the pressure off raising revenue from general rates, but forgot to tell the ratepayers that was part of the strategy.
So there we have it. The days of simply turning on the tap and using the water you needed are gone. Water will no doubt be front page news for ever and a day.
When water was all about water

What fine young ambassadors for Wellington.
Something to think about this week:
1. Overheard on the local radio (naturally Binjang 91.5) was May is History Month, so those keen family members wishing to make sure their Family Trees are up to date maybe this is the time to do so, or history buffs just wanting to do some research on yesteryear go for it.
2. Apprentice of the Year – congratulations to young Lincoln Brien on his recent achievement, you have joined a very few honoured Wellingtonians in achieveing such an honour in their chosen professions.
3. Council’s Report Card Gathering – Wednesday night 6pm at Civic Centre.
These meetings instigated by our new general manager offer great insite into how and what is being planned or taking place in our council for all months of the year.
The Draft Budget is also being presented as well as the very contentious issue of the NSW state government amalgamating councils will be no doubt be mentioned.
Good golfing especially those of us still trying to achieve a good round for the championships.
