If the metro tunnel had four tracks, not just two, it would be wise. Much of this tunnel is directly south of most of the Upfield line.

If you want something confusing, look at stations in London:

Acton Main Line, Acton Central, Acton Town, South Acton, West Acton, North Acton, South Acton.

The main thing that will kill the night network will be frequencies and poor connections.

Best way for low cost - is train to Broadmeows and then the bus.

People disregarding or ignoring the flashing lights, bells and gates does not make a level crossing dangerous.

Going by the same logic as above, you should electrify to Bendigo!

The main improvement you can give to the Sunbury line is 10 minute off-peak frequencies.

Yes, overcrowding is an issue on the Su ...

One of the main issues is that dwell times are much higher these days, especially with express trains - more people on and off at a small number of stations, compared to a small number of people at a  ...

[quote=tom9876543]There is a distance of about 600m from Hawksburn Station to Chapel St. At 1/32 (existing grade is about 1/60), the underground station would be around 9m below the existing rail line ...

Also would like to point out that after trying to dig a tunnel near the Yarra in the past, they have learnt a few things.

First, any soil dug up will bring Sulphuric acid with it. A bit hard to just ...

For platforms at South Yarra, the track needs to be absolutely straight in all three dimensions (no slopes, no curves). Try getting a straight line of 250 metres near the station entrance AND connect  ...

It seems that it is actually 4G-LTE that is activated, at least for Telstra anyways. I guess that it depends on your phone and your provider.

Have you actually had a look at the site constraints? Rail under road is still going to be too difficult to get back up to Caulfield in time, let alone add the flying junctions. Water table issues, an ...

The plan was originally for triplication and grade separation through Glen Huntly, with a rejigging of the arrangement from Caulfield to Richmond in a Up Up Down Down arrangement (same between Richmon ...

When you check patronage stats, there isn't even enough patronage at the three stations on the Altona loop line to justify even a bus every ten minutes! IIRC I calculated closer to 20 minutes apart fo ...

[quote=Heihachi_73]Who says all four tracks need to have platforms at every station? Most expresses in that area are Jolimont to Clifton Hill. Is there room for 2 platforms with 2 express tracks ala E ...

Tanker traffic probably raises its risk level.

That said, the Altona and Williamstown lines should really be light rail, which drops 8 crossings off the list.

I think some people have missed the point. You cant say that one part has space for 4 tracks, like saying that Gipps Street can fit four tracks, when there are sections that won't? You couldn't build  ...

Pretty big call to say it's screwed up only because there wasn't space to do it properly. They can screw things up even with lots of space!

If there were enough space for four tracks between Clifton Hill and Flinders street, they wouldn't have screwed up the entrance to the City Loop, would they? It would have been a centre portal, not a  ...

Most of the issues through Jolimont - Clifton Hill are platform capacity at Flinders Street, and mixed services absorbing capacity.

Easy fixes for both - move driver changeovers outside of Flinders s ...

Because V/Line trains are not limitless capacity either - they are experiencing overcrowding themselves. What would be a worse situation - someone can't get on a Pakenham train and has to wait 5 minut ...
