Simon Ramsay MP Breaks Ballan Rail Promise


Geoff Howard MP, State member for Ballarat East, expresses concern at another Coalition
broken promise.

Simon Ramsay announces another broken election promise made by the Coalition
Government in Ballan today.

Ahead of the 2010 election the coalition clearly promised a passing loop at Ballan with
a second rail platform to be constructed in Ballan and a pedestrian flyover.

“Ballan residents should rightly be disappointed by this decision not to honour this
promise which would have provided greater flexibility and more opportunities
for Ballan rail travellers,” Mr Howard said.

This adds to the other broken promise made by the Coalition to build a new police station
in Sebastopol where the government has recently advised that they no longer
plan to honour this promise.
