says: stabling for one train at Shep station. Finish by the end of the year.
Stage two includes:
new stabling at or north of Shepparton to house VLocity trains
platform extensions at Shepparton, Mooroopna, Murchison East and Nagambie stations
signalling and track upgrades to enable trains to travel at up to 130km/h
upgrades to 54 level crossing between Seymour and Shepparton.
(a few of these are farmgate crossings)
Well, the work site has certainly been established:
Arrival in Shepparton presents an ungaily series of piles ... of soil, spent ballast, spent sleepers and an untidy heap of pallets (wherever they come from):
The former Freight Australia depot is looking worse for the wear
We may yet see these buildings demolished as they are said to be invaded by white ants
So where is the stabling siding going to be?
Nothing appears to be marked out.
Is it a new track or an existing track with lighting and a new footpath?
This is rumour 1, a stabling site next year, rumoured to be somewhere here, Grahamvale.
