Labor supports Bendigo's trams

Thursday, 12 January 2012

The Member for Bendigo East, Jacinta Allan, today congratulated the Bendigo Trust on the successful $3.2 million redevelopment of the Bendigo Tram Depot, funded by the former Labor Government.

"Bendigo's trams are an iconic part of our city. Bendigo is known around the world for its tram network and the redeveloped tram depot will allow the Bendigo Trust to take restore and rejuvenate more trams from Bendigo and across the world."

"I am proud to have been associated with supporting this redevelopment. As Minister for Regional Development, I approved the $1.5 million grant provided by the former Labor Government through the Regional Infrastructure Development Fund to get this project off the ground."

"The Bendigo Tram Depot project is a great example of how the RIDF supported infrastructure projects that created jobs and supported regional economies."

"I developed a great affection for Bendigo's trams after spending a lot of time in my younger years playing amongst the trams at the Bendigo Depot . It is wonderful to see the potential of the site and the trams being taken to another level with the completion of this redevelopment," Ms Allan said.
