Recall this idea too, a tram over a recently grade separated crossing with the Frankston line.

If this light rail is to service Caulfield, Chadstone and Monash Clayton before heading to Rowville, then I don't see the point in running down North Rd at all. Just go straight down Princes Hwy, and then turn into Wellington Rd and off you go.

North Rd is just a needless diversion that would add an unwanted increase in travel times.

Keep it as a simple, fast, high frequency, direct route with stops spaced appropriately. That is how you will get people to leave their cars at home.

The idea is to have a second route to Monash along North road, this would be a cross suburban route.

$475 million in the federal budget for this - but it has to be heavy rail. Yep, you read that correctly.

I'm surprised that "Dan the Builder" doesn't just sky-rail the extension right down the middle of the road

This would really make the most sense given heavy rail is the only real option and then swing the line where after Monash at Clayton?

Wait for it - 'the line cannot be heavy rail due to no capacity on the Dandenong Corridor'Rolling Eyes

The feds will only fund a real connection being heavy rail.  Says as much in the press release.

I actually don't mind this from the feds. Metro 1 should provide enough space for the Rowville line short term, and if two more tracks can be squeezed through you could make all the Cranbourne/Pakenham speed through the inner stations along with V/Lines and have the Rowville line service the inner stations.
