V/Line trains recorded a drop in punctuality and reliability on the Ballarat line last month, new figures reveal.

THE Committee for Ballarat has renewed calls for serious investment in Ballarat’s rail infrastructure, after train punctuality fell to an 18-month low in January.
Committee for Ballarat chief executive officer John Kilgour said improving connectivity between Ballarat and Melbourne was vital to the region’s development.
V/LINE has again failed to reach its punctuality goal for services on the Ballarat line.
Only 88.3 per cent of services during March reached the goal of arriving within six minutes of the scheduled time.
The goal for punctuality is to have 92 per cent of trains arrive within this time frame
JUST a handful of train services on the Fast Rail project will meet the State Government's promised travel times.
GIPPSLAND is set to become one of the last remaining rail lines to share V/line services with metro trains, despite hosting the longest stretch of metro track in the Victorian network.
This comes as the service recorded the state's worst punctuality targets for more than 12 months running, with only 77.8 per cent of trains arriving at destinations within six minutes of scheduled times, according to performance figures released last Monday.
A spokesperson for V/Line said Gippsland was the most affected service in the state, with 50 per cent of delays directly attributable to congestion, and the service had not met performance targets since before 2006.
