Could a left field solution be to put a beeping noise like they do at the crossings every time there's a train about to come? It would surely be a helluva lot cheaper than the sort of complicated fenc ...

A couple of days ago, a 15 year old girl died, hit by a train at the Glenroy end of the bridge. It was an absolute tragedy no doubt, but based on the sheer number of people who go up there, unfortunat ...

GST to 20% is a no brainer

Raising the GST would be downright stupid. We don't need to punish the poor even more than we do already. Do away with regressive taxes and focus on i ...

Some interesting nuggets (especially of the northern section) I found in the business case:

Glenroy Road has gone strangely quiet. Perhaps Andrews and Allan have got sufficient new crash hats and train proof jackets.

They're in service but you pretty much have to be a train-spotter to catch one because they're not running ordinary services yet. The HCMT appreciation page on Facebook is one way. I think you can als ...

You'd better hope the Airport line trains wouldn't have to cross over the Sunbury line at grade after coming down that bridge!

I don't understand why one is needed though. Is there too little space ...

[quote=Craigieburn line user]I feel like it would've worked as Skyrail? The line has always had a steep grade (cue flashbacks to the train rolling from Broady to SSS). Maybe Skyrail would've flattened ...

Oh how much I am looking forward to putting a certain party last in both!

The Sunshine station layout is going to be verrrry interesting. I would hope they do it once and do it right (as best as possible).

This is my suggestion:

[quote=mejhammers1]Even so, I can sort of justify $13.74 Billion for Melbourne Metro 1 and 9 Years. But $10 Billion and 7 years for mostly a track pair a new bridge and about 6 kms of entirely new bui ...

I was lucky enough to ride the HCMT today. These were my impressions:

Interesting to see that the actual SRL line itself will emerge from the tunnels at the site of the stabling yard for access to it before going back underground. For some reason I expected it to stay u ...

(If/) When stage 2 of SRL opens, the trains will presumably terminate at the airport right? Why not extend stage two such that the airport line gets converted to SRL, therefore leaving SRL trains to t ...

They're absolutely flying towards 75. I wonder if they could push 100 by 2026. It's ambitious but at the current rate doable.

Perhaps you prefer Station McStation Face? Laughing

In this case I'd love to see it just because of the hilarious disgust we'd see from the locals.

Good to see the Libs finally coming to the party. Whether any of these would actually end up being removed under a hypothetical Liberal government is another matter - we all know their record.

Will they tunnel a tiny bit further than Box Hill to make stage 2 (if it ever happens) easier? It would be extremely difficult I'd imagine to link up the tunnels I'd imagine if they didn't.

Also confirms location of the start point will be Southland, with a station marker on the corner of Bay and Reserve roads.
