As someone who actually lives in the Doncaster area and work on the Doncaster Rail campaign, I completely disagree. The Doncaster Rail Study showed that an orbital option would attract very little pat ...

OP stated that the trains will be built at Newport, when in fact the Trans will be made in China and assembled in Newport.  Dan's spinning the facts again.

Do you have a source fo ...

I've got the old line diagrams and maps if anyone wants them. Not sure how to upload them here.

Road over is also generally a poor community and urban planning outcome. It makes the urban environment much more unpleasant, makes transferring between modes (such as bus to train) more difficult and ...

If anyone is interested in level crossing removals, I created a custom Google map a few months ago which plots all the level crossings in Melbourne, including which ones are earmarked for removal, the ...

Original plans had the tram platform further south, directly in front of the station entrance and closer to the shops. However, having just had a look at some photos, I can see the road has quite an i ...

I have no idea what all you guys are arguing about but it's a terrible bore.

Regarding the actual topic of this thread and the recent Community Update released for Gardiner Station, it seems that t ...

Yes, it is.

I was wondering if anyone would ever have a guess.

As I have no photos of Melbourne's tram network, I'll open it to the floor.

Reviving this dead thread, it's Bourke Street at the intersection with Hardware Lane Cool

Aspendale? Always reminded me of aspirin.

I rode on the RRL for the first time the other day and had a terrible experience. At Footscray, both the staircases were closed for no apparent reason, meaning a rush for the lifts, which meant I miss ...

I'm much more in favour of Gman_86's proposal. Opening new stations is not how you fix the Werribee line. Instead, apart from an operational nightmare, it would slow down express Werribee trains by at ...

[quote=Myrtone]But there are so many level crossings on that line, and still single track north of Gowrie, so something does need to be done, this diversion in some form would be most effective.[/quot ...

Having used said railway in said country, I can assure you that electrification is a far off pipe dream, apart from its use on the proposed Dhaka Metro. Dual gauge does exist due to the variety of gau ...

As we know, Main Road and Furlong Road St Albans are both to be done together as one package. I heard from someone that Ginifer Station is to be rebuilt, but adjacent to Furlong Road, both in order to ...

Unfortunately, we live in a system of limited monetary resources, and diverting billions upon billions of dollars of funding to simply move a low-frequency, low-patronised railway line 175m to the eas ...

I wonder if the slope is so steep so that the platform is actually level with the train carriage? Or have we still not worked that out, and will wheelchair ramps be required again?

I came here to discuss Melbourne Metro Rail, but it seems all you folk seem to do is scream your partisan lines.

I don't think the issue with MMR is the state funding, or even the federal funding ( ...

[quote=Grosso]Also announced,

Labor wants the Liberals to agree to there plans to lease the Port of Melbourne?! Lol.... Please, this has underfunded project written all over it.. Labor have promise ...

Do you if this will be occurring with the April TT change?

No idea to be honest! But considering I was told 8 and 55 merging would occur soon, then I assume that it will be ...

What do you mean about third track ? tram track ?
Nightfire
A third tram track to get terminating and/or turning 72 (University-Gardiner) trams out of the way of through-running Caulfiel ...

Route 72 up Burke Road is a very well patronised route. To act as a better cross-town service and connect the whole of Boroondara and Glen Eira, it just needs to be extended at least north to North Ba ...

[quote=jfan]The PDF download (massive ~26mb) from the link below has a centre terminating track in the plans... not saying that it is the actual track design but they must have got the idea from somew ...

This may be too forward thinking for the short-sightedness of Victorian planning, but I hope there is some kind of thought being put into future tram changes in the area. Yarra Trams proposes splittin ...
