Are you sure? I can't see it on that site.

I hope they fix up the subway (clean it) and fix the platform 3 building - it looked like it was falling down when I was there, all sadly boarded up. My pics are at: http://bgstations.fotopic.net/c720886.html

A new terminating station station? A referbishment will do. No need for a new station when it only needs a clean.

Werribee definitely needs train stabling facilities, but I agree, having been to Werribee 3 times, that the station itself only needs a bit of a refurbishment.....the actual location of the station is fairly ideal IMHO.

It looks pretty vague, I read "new terminating station" and I think "Werribee West station" or "Wyndham Vale station" or "reopened Werribee Racecourse station".

I think the same.

I remember reading somewhere (I think an article was scanned and posted here somewhere) What included a spur line from Werribee to Whyndum Vale, or was it jsut an extra station? Either way,this isn't the first of the talk of that. I'll do a search....

Would Derrimut Road fit into the picture as well???? or is it categorically Werribee station?

"calt"

A station at Derrimut Road, Werribee East would be useful as well, although I think this thread is regarding either the existing Werribee station or a new western terminus.

I'd like to see a two tier service (along with significant upgrades to the Werribee line, especially at Laverton Station).

The first would be a direct service via the mainline: et al>Newport>Newport West>Laverton>Aircraft>Forsyth>Hoppers Crossing>Werribee East>Werribee>Werribee West

The second would be et al>Newport>Seaholme>Altona>Westona>Laverton
