t would be great if the grade separation had provision for a station at Camp Road for connections to the 902 Smartbus. The platform is most likely to be on near-level track between Camp Road and the Ring Road. The Camp Road bridge span should be long enough to accommodate not only a double track, but also a pedestrian path from each platform to the north side of Camp Road for connections to buses. As part of the road rebuild, there should be provision for bus stop bays on each side of the road for an easy connection to the station.You just don't understand the system, do you? What you're suggesting is called planning, and we don't go for that nonsense here. If a station is to be built there, it will be after the grade separation has been complete for at least ten years, and will be of considerably higher cost than if it were done now. Furthermore, what does the convenience of travellers matter? The shiny bums get well paid regardless of what level of service the public gets. Some may say I'm a cynic, and they'd be right.
This could be a very useful station in the event of disruption on the Craigieburn or South Morang lines, because a bus bridge could easily be set up between Camp Road and Broadmeadows Station, or Camp Road and Keon Park station.
While the surrounding area is industrial, there are pockets of residential such as behind the Campbellfield Shopping Centre.
