Not a single new service will come from this $1b investment which is level crossing removal only.  Will any of this work make returning trains to Clyde easier?

Paragraph 9 seems to be the one to read.

Obviously you did not read as far as the second last (9th) paragraph.

I did miss tat specifically and given 2023 for the duplication it would mean 2030 for Clyde trains which is just ridiculous to take so long.

You seem to not read a lot of the 'news' that you think worthy of comment. Perhaps if you did there would be no reason to start a thread in many cases.

In regard to this one, you asked a question - and were pointed to the relevant paragraph - so no need to add more political comment.

There is a whole thread about trains to Clyde, here it is so you don't have to go searching - though you have posted in it:

Go and read it right through and then ask your questions or make your comments there.

I read an article from abc not that long ago that the growth corridor of city of casey/ cardina is the fastest growing region in the world .
It is staggering that something like 300 new cars enter a suburb to live each week .

I drive those roads and it does get worse week by week . The sooner a train line is built the better .

No doubt but the rail line by itself is not a cure all to the problem. Roads will have to play a part too until we work out a better solution to the problem of moving people around especially in those suburbs that were / are built with car transport in mind.

The solution will require a LOT more than some outrage on the pages of RP about road projects.

Spot on Richard  however no date and no plan for the rail line which as already mentioned in the thread is years away.  Something is wrong with the planning process when infrastructure could be a generation away from new suburbs kicking off.  What is thw solution to fix the lag between new suburbs and rail access for passenger and freight?
