One of the city's busiest train lines could be re-routed as part of the Melbourne Metro Rail project, leaving thousands of passengers without a direct service to South Yarra and Richmond stations.
As the Andrews government starts planning how trains will use the new tunnel, one option is for the Cranbourne-Pakenham services to skip South Yarra and Richmond and travel directly from Hawksburn to Domain, one of the five underground stations that will be built as part of $11 billion project.
Of course there are going to be changes for some lines which may require people to change trains during their journey. This happens on other networks.
The tunnel portal on near South Yarra might be better constructed on the downside?
