This is why I believe it's pivotal that Metro 2 is quad tunnel.

The current issue is that you have Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo trains all using the same track pair, and in best practice it's limi ...

Every project completed along the Wyndham Vale and Melton corridors has been done with electrification in mind, in theory it should be a straightforward project (depending on what happe ...

Should be a tunnel directly from the airport to Southern Cross. Shouldn't be stopping anywhere else, should run 24/7 at 10 minuite intervals.

There is also another project at the Airport to re-arrange the access into the (elevated) car park. A new train station in the air may fit nicely with that.

What everyone seems to be forgetting is that the purpose of SRL in the east and west are very different. This is why the west is at this stage under cooked.

[quote=TOQ-1]Yes for Airport. These will be the only trains on the Aiport Line, as they will go through Metro Tunnel requiring they meet the platform screen doors in the inner city.

They should just have 2 platforms but 4 tracks IMO.

Same as for the Frankston removals with the tri-track.

LXRP/LXRA are not forward thinkers....

[quote=True Believers][quote]I think we should make some noise to LXRP about provision for 4 tracks.[/quote]

In my opinion the 4 tracks should only go as far as Camberwell, as stated in the PTV netwo ...

Adding Werribee to that list.

I'm hoping there will be a second change in April that will include all these changes, plus revamps of the connecting bus networks.

My guess is that it will be 50 E2s (or E3s) and 50 F class trams

E3s is they want to make any modifications to the cab or the like, otherwise the E2 will suffice
