Four days after DoT told us that a community reference group (CRG) was under consideration, the Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Anthony Albanese, announced the creation of the a CRG for the RRL project and provided the terms of reference. Although the establishment of a CRG is welcome, we are very disappointed that we didn't receive any notice from DoT regarding this – we just happened to find it on RRL website.
Disappointingly too, the CRG will not be for just this section of the RRL project, but will include all municipalities affected by the project (Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Maribyrnong, Brimbank and Wyndham). The CRG will have an independent chairperson and will comprise one senior council representative and one community representative from each of the municipalities. Nominations for the community representative positions will closed on 12th December.
