Has road 2 been removed from Mildura?

Are the car sheds still in Mildura Yard?

I believe Mildura station itself was straight-railed several years ago.

Well 40kph is just way too slow. Portland can do so much more for freight in the western half of Victoria. That is what I meant by competition for the port of Melbourne.

Thanks Rusty

The rail for Maroona to Portland is 47kg and was laid in the 1970's or 1980"s? As compared to the very old (1919) 41 kg on Maryborough to Ararat.

That said, I would give the projec ...

By local travel I assume you mean for example, Moe to Traralgon? Or similar journeys.

Would the (now completed) track upgrades improve line speeds and travel times for the current rolling stock? So the N Sets and the XPT? If so by how much?
