Explain to me how linking three major rural towns Bendigo-Ballarat-Geelong makes less sense then the Mildura Line.
How can you calculate traffic when there are no service standards?

How about a railway line that’s 250 kilometres long. (Geelong-Ballarat-Maryborough-Bendigo.)Already 200 kilometres of that are Platinum LinesThe last 50 kilometres needs construction.Populat ...

1GTK is most likely 1 Gross Tonne Kilometre.
It could also be one Giga Tonne Kilometre but I doubt it.
Lets say its a Gross Tonne Kilometer.
So it 2.95 per 000 ...

I believe i am completely wrong with my calculations.If the Variable price per '000k GTK is $2.95What is it at 1GTK?

luznug you can't assume that ALL truck traffic can be diverted off the freeway to a by-pass or rail.Also you allow 40 tonnes per vehicle, I doubt you'd find many trucks loaded to the max, also I d ...

It would make an interesting set of numbers to see how much money PN has paid VicTrak over a financial year then calculate how much GTK was moved for that price?Then how much money has been saved/ma ...

Even discounting you wonky figures it does show that there are many vehicles that should be off the road and replaced by rail. That is really the best bypass Adelaide or Melbourne can ...

Hmm all right, but if we can convert vehicles to Tonnes its more realistic.
2000 trucks @ 40 tonnes (good central figure) is 80,000 tonnes removed from the S/E
So removing all this Road Tonnage ...
