Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (12:38:15): My constituency question is directed to the Honourable Jacinta Allan, Minister for Transport Infrastructure. The Andrews Labor government is keeping its promise and getting on with the vital planning needed to deliver fast rail to the regions and more metro services to our growing suburbs. As you know, the Victorian budget of 2019–20 invests $100 million in the Western Rail Plan. The investment will continue the technical work required to deliver two new electrified metro lines to Melton and Wyndham Vale, with the Wyndham Vale line potentially becoming the western section of the Suburban Rail Loop. The upgrade will ensure the additional tracks between Sunshine and the CBD will enable more trains to run. My question to the minister is: can the minister provide me with the approximate time savings constituents from my region travelling on those lines would have each day?
