This MARL/SRL business needs to be cleared up ASAP.I would guess it would be two services, one track pair. By saying that MARL will make up the western portion of SRL makes it sound like the government is doing work on the western section 20 years before they plan too. MARL will open around 2022/25 when the SRL will link to the airport is anyones guess.
Are they proposing two services?
2. Melbourne to Airport
or are they proposing that people switch trains at Sunshine for a train to the city?
My thoughts on the SRL west of the Airport are on the other thread.
I do agree that we need a development plan to see how all of this is going to work. Which the government is required to do under the Transport Facilitation Act 2009, seems that they are quietly ignoring that right now.
