Making a sub-hour train to Melbourne a reality - 59minuteballarat

26 Oct 2017

Thank you to those that have been on board our #59minuteballarat campaign. We have had a solid four weeks of the campaign and gathered a number of community stories to present to decision-makers – a compelling case to make #59minuteballarat a reality.

We have had strong support from The Courier highlighting a number of different stories and the benefit to Ballarat and Melbourne as a whole. There has also been continuous support from Radio Ballarat and local TV stations.

A document will now be collated with all the findings and stories. We will share once it is finalised. This will be an essential tool in advocating to government.

Although we will decrease our campaign presence via social media, we, of course, still welcome stories via email 59minute@committeeforballarat.com telling us why #59minuteballarat is important and what it means for train users.

Thank you again to everybody who has been on board – here's to making a sub-hour train journey a reality!
