What a stupid comment.Exactly what I'm predicting they'll do and for the same reasons.There were some rubbery dates posted by someone on the Level Crossing Removal page
Noble Park opens around February
Clayton opens around April
Murrumbeena opens around June
The whole line would have to be shut down to build the ramps and connect the old line with the new - surely it would all be done in one lot?
You aren't thinking like a politician.
3 separate openings means 3 ribbons to cut, 3 media cycles and after all, it's an election year!
So if they're ready to go at different times, then that's what they'll do.
I wouldn't be surprised if Stations were opened on different days for the ability to have 9 press conferences.
Are you seriously suggesting that to avoid the possibility of multiple opening ceremonies, the opening of sections or stations that are ready for use be deferred until the entire project is finished?
