Scomo will accelerate infrastructure projects and might even announce new ones. HSR rail has been mentioned again between the states but we all know that is unlikely.

Suburban Rail Loop won’t be ...

Don’t know why people are against a South Yarra/Caufield to Dandenong (possibly beyond) Quadriplication on the Pakenham and Cranbourne Lines. It is in everyone’s best interest to see this project  ...

Reckon this project has to be and may even be shelved. Coronavirus impact will be around 60-70 Billion deficit and it could rise to 200 Billion if it gets very ugly.

I know usually mega scale proj ...

Reckon there’s room between Gardenvale and Elsternwick for stabling. That’s a separate issue - How would you achieve straight platforms at Brighton Beach anyway

You’ve got to a) Acquire shop ...

I don’t think the NE Link is needed, would only create more traffic and make a good case for the EW Link which we can all agree will take valuable and necessary $$ from rail. SRL works because the l ...

Still is a fair few priority ones, you’ve mentioned most.

Both Macauley Crossings, Tooronga/Glenferrie Rds certainly warrant removal.

Strong cases for Puckle Rd Moonee Ponds and Webb St Narre Wa ...

Monorail is the outstanding choice. Cost effective, quicker, independent to the n ...

The other option to get four tracks through is to bulldoze the stations between Camberwell-Box Hill and concert them to East Richmond style, two express in the middle.

And if we are being optimist ...

Is Coldstream possible alongside duplication in the future. Plenty of room for a stabling yard

15 Billion for Airport Rail.

15 BILLION DOLLARS

That’s outrageous, it’s a catastrophic waste of money. That money could be spent on something very, very necessary like Metro 2.

Why is the ...

Wirh regards to Metro 2, if there is any way to quad the track and not make it a huge cost than it should be done. High speed Geelong services terminating at Southern Cross would be good.

Why don' ...

Is there provision to extend the current project all the way to Caufield ?

With Frankston And both Dandenong lines out of action, where are the extra services on the Sandringham Line. Had to migrate over there and it's the usual 15 minute off peak with no extra services at a ...

How about deliver the Airport Rail via the Suburban Rail Loop. 15 Billion for Airport Rail, absolutely not. Deliver it via SRL and then build RRL 2.0.

Southern Cross to Seymour, Shepparton and Bend ...

The SRL isn’t a bad concept, the western and northern ends do need a rethink. I would rather deliver the Airport Rail via the Suburban Rail Loop, the 15 Billion dollar city to airport is a bigger jo ...

Would be a ridiculous waste of money to truncate at Eltham after they are spending $$$ in stage 2 to duplicate some track between Wattle Glen and Diamond Creek

[url=/user/2][b]@bevans[/b] - what’s with the continual bashing of Labor, Andrews and the skyrail works. CD9 Skyrail has been a success.

All this heritage stuff is ridiculous. It’s a signal bo ...

With the elevated rail project on the Caulfield-Dandenong Line, the LXRA mentions it as being completed. However, the station canopies on most if not all of the stations have not been finished and com ...

Changing trains isn’t a problem, I do it every day. As long as the service runs on time and every few minutes connectivity wise than that’s fine.

Every Metro system in the world has people cha ...

Changing trains at Sunshine. Costing 15 Billion.

Even the 15 Billion in general is extreme. Just build a direct bus lane/Busway all the way into the city out to the airport. Might as well get on bui ...

I don’t see why we should even bother expanding Avalon and keeping it at all. Melbourne already has one airport in the West. That airport is particularly hard to get to. Going to catch a flight from ...

[quote=MetroFemme]Work being specified for new metro 2 as track management plans now indicate metro 1 will cause issues on Sandringham line. Expect work to link this line with Newport via tunnel.[/quo ...

May I ask what will happen in regards to the crossover at Coburg now that there’s elevated rail going in place ?

When will high capacity trams be coming, most likely for the 86 and 96. Would be nice to solve capacity and demand with the luas variant of tram, which is 55m in length
