Nobody is talking about consolidating and closing other stations around the network. Nor should they.
They absolutley should. Sections like the Alamein line are a joke. They end up forcing the train to go at such a slow speed they may as well convert it to light rail as it'd probably be faster.
Should demolish Riversdale and Wilson, grade seperate Riversdale Rd and build a station right under the road.
Demolish Hartwell and Burwood and put a station directly over Toorak Rd.
Close Alamein, move/extend Ashburton so it's better connected to High St. Or instead of closing Alamein, extend the line back out to Ryburne Ave and move the station there. If we really want a fast, high capacity network there should be fewer stations with better connections to main roads and public transport.
