In The Courier on Saturday December 22, V/Line advised that there would be no trains between Ballarat and Melbourne from 4 January until 13 January. Apparently buses will replace the services.
My concern, and I would have thought Ballarat Council and tourism, is that this service disruption falls on the week of the Australian Cycle Championships.
There will be no facilities for visitors to bring their cycles to Ballarat. The buses will also mean a delay of 40 minutes.
I am surprised that the council and event organisers and sponsors haven’t expressed their concern to V/Line and the government.
