Summary: ARTC wants to replace the 1961 overpass to the south of the station with a higher overpass to accommodate double stacked containers. Some (at least) in the community consider that an alternative method of crossing the line would be preferable - a level crossing or an underpass. A large part of the stated argument is improving the status of the land west of the line, which is currently cut off from the rest of Euroa. ARTC says that an underpass would be prone to flood and an intrusive levy would be necessary. The nay-sayers say that ARTC hasn't provided any 'substantial evidence' of why it must build a higher overpass, and the mayor wants the community involved in the final design in a 'meaningful way'.
[comment: the Seven Creeks at the other end of the station does, indeed, regularly flood parts of the town. I could see why ARTC wouldn't want to lower the railway line, even a bit, and why an underpass would flood. It's also hard to see how an underpass would be any less divisive than an overpass. The article has a lovely artistic rendition of a *low* underpass that would be nothing like what would actually be provided given it'd need to be about 6 metres deep. 'Substantial evidence', of course, means that the community group doesn't like what they are hearing, and 'meaningful way' means that they get what they want.]
I would imagine that the same story would be being played out at the other overbridges on the NE standard gauge - Glenrowan & Wangaratta.
