Not quite - the City of Greater Geelong's current population is around 250,000, with the council's (possibly optimistic) forecast claiming it'll be close to 400,000 by 2040.A business case to Clyde has to be the most redundant thing I've ever heard. They're packing more people into that part of Melbourne than almost any other. 70,000 people will live in Clyde alone by 2040 and a further 84,000 in Clyde North.
Bigger than Geelong.
With the Geelong line also running through Wyndham, which has another 270,000 people at the moment and will no doubt keep on growing, the real point here is that every year we don't see serious expenditure in expanding the network across all of Melbourne's fringe - east west and north - is another year we fall even further behind.
