And yet again another brainfart idea to waste $15B.
MARL @ $5B is reasonable given the complex station at the airport. $10B is acceptable if delivers lots of needed improvement to western Vic connections.
But $15B is just making stuff up so consortiums can spend big and make big profits.
On what planet would anybody consider SCS to be the best terminal?
1. No room for a metro track be used as a turn back, they are chockers. Using Vline platforms even sillier, in/out of that maze every 10 minutes is fantasy.
UNLESS a big chunk of dollars to re-do the whole SCS catastophy, underground platforms, etc etc ha ha ha
2. SCS is the worst possible introduction to a city, and I have seen some shockers . Nothing there but offices, crap shops, cheap back packers, and sleeze.
All the decent sights and accomodation are at the other end of town - served by MM1 or the Loop.
EXCEPT the casino (maybe I just answered my own question)
I have said it before on this thread, and will continue.
There is plenty of room on the existing paths Dynon to Sunshine to utilize with better design. More paths and tunnels is a lazy expensive solution looking for a non existent problem.
