And Tony Abbott has confirmed that funding passenger rail is not a Federal government responsibility.
It’s not Liberal policy to build rail. A few years back the Liberals shut the Fremantle line and planned to close the Midland and Armadale lines until a State election kicked them out of office and the Labor Party saved the day.
Under this Liberal government there will be no new rail services as it plans to close Wheatbelt rail lines in favour of road transport.
