What happened to the petition to reopen Harcourt’s rail service?
Over 540 signatures were presented to Maree Edwards at the December 2019 Twilight Market.
This petition was presented to Parliament in the last sitting week in 2019. In the meantime, HPA is preparing an online petition to collect further signatures to help bring about the return of a passenger rail service to Harcourt.
Next steps – online survey in 2021 planned
The roundabout upgrade was driven by Harcourt Progress Association and achieved through a combination of VicRoads funding and in-kind support from the community.
