An interesting video by a bloke going for a jog along the old Noojee line, with a goal to clear the path.

Well made, with ample trespassing.

Can't this go in an off topic thread somewhere?

This is a dumb 'survey' they counted the number of bus stops per suburb as how well serviced it is by PT. Not the fact it may only have 1 route runni ...

Any word on the street about the HCMT? They surely must be commencing testing soon.
Gotta wait until after the April shutdown. They can't run past South Yarra just yet.

We're heading into recession, so spending on infrastructure is a great thing to do to keep the economy afloat.

Tooradin is too small and it is a grass runway anyway. It would remain as a light aircraft airstrip and a helicport.

Monomeith will have a private airport built on it mainly for tourism flights i ...

If coldstream gets a future stabling or maintenance facility then a park and ride station can be attached.

The federal election can now be won or lost solely in Victoria, all the pork barreling in regional QLD and NSW is no longer enough for the LNP to stay in power.
