Despite what has Ben mentioned it seems the $2.1 billion announced today is not a cost over full from MM1. This project is being rolled out the same as CD9 was. In addition to the MM1 project.
The project is scheduled to be completed mid 2024/25.
It seems the government was hoping that if Bill was elected his $2B promise would fund this package of works and would free up the state government to spend elsewhere.
What stations are on the hit list for upgrades?
-Watergardens ($8 million already announced)
Platform extensions at the majority of stations, some more complicated than others. St Albans and Ginifer already have provisions. I’m not sure which others do.
Reconfigured stabeling at Sunbury to accomodate linger trains? Modified Calder Park?
Hopefully the government will put some meat on the bones before this becomes to foamy.
