The funny thing is the amount of advertising compare to actual visible work taking place. Every station on the Frankston line has posters attached announcing the Bayside Rail Project. I judge by the amount of evident work that has been happening, but the whole project seems to be really cosmetic - painting stations, new toilets at Mordialloc, new bus terminal & station entrance at Moorabbin. Heaps of little things but nothing really big. I compare this too:
Ringwood Corridor between Richmond - Box Hill: Major track & signalling upgrades seem to be underway with large parts of the lines having concrete sleepers installed and new signalling being installed everywhere.
Clifton Hill Corridor between Jolimont - Clifton Hill: Same as the Ringwood group with major track upgrades taking place.
The difference to the Bayside project is huge and there is no advertising in place on either of these two mentioned projects. The Liberals are only advertising to desperately hold onto the Bayside seats as they only won them on a small margin and they are likely to change hands once again.
