MOTI Response on Revitalizing Island Rail

The AVICC received a response from MOTI to Resolution R8 on funding for Revitalization of Island Rail. Minister Trevena advised the Ministry is close to completing an “all-in” assessment to determine the costs associated with restoring rail service in the corridor, and provided a staff contact for updates on the assessment. The letter was forwarded to the resolution sponsor, the City of Victoria.

The correspondence is available on the AVICC website under Resources and the response letter is also linked here:

Letter from Minister Trevena, MOTI

A good response will mean more insight into how COVID19 has affected Island Communities and will be valuable for ongoing decision making.
