Victoria to unite

THE hard border separating Melbourne from communities in regional Victoria could be removed as soon as November 8 according to premier, Daniel Andrews.

“I can confirm that (on November 8) the 25-kilometre travel limit will go, and the metropolitan Melbourne-regional border will go as well,” he said on Monday.

“The state will be one again.”

Southern Grampians Shire chief executive, Michael Tudball said with the border coming down, many families across the shire would feel a sense of relief.

“This will be incredibly important for families who have been disconnected for a long period time and it will allow them to catch up with loved ones,” he said.
