Getting to Hawthorn by:
Train 9 minutes
If the station wasn't there.
Tram 19 minutes
Walk to Glenferrie + Train 24 minutes.
During peak hours a lot of trains do bypass Hawthorn. The most impact is an extra 10-15 minutes if the train station wasn't there. Reubstar: the impact wouldn't be so great than you think it is.
But this Camberwell Quadruplication project is still years away or may not happen at all? So discussing this topic any further, is really just speculation and guess work. Realistically the Dandenong quadruplication is the project that we should get more attention to, even though that is also under speculation too. I wonder what would it be like if the Dandenong line actually had triplication like the Frankston/Lilydale/Belgrave lines.
