Cranbourne duplication

 
  Tony M. Junior Train Controller

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.

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.

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.

It does, but if your internet is lagging and you keep pressing the submit button then it'll post everytime you press it, instead of being patient and waiting for it to go through the first time.

Clyde will be part of the next state government cycle after the 2022 state Election. So some announcement by 2024 I'd say to start in 2025 but you never know.

Sorry Richard, your tally of 5 duplicate posts is way behind the record, someone (they know who they are) managed 9 duplicate posts a couple of weeks ago.

Must try harder.

Clyde will be this year. Andrews will take it to the election as a promise to build sometime before 2025. In the grand scheme of the Dandenong Line Upgrade, it's a little project. Two new stations, a rebuilt Cranbourne, seven greenfields level crossings and six roads at Clyde. $1Billion over a few years to be ribbon-cutting before the 2026 election.

Agreed Lockie. Not that big in the scheme of things, now that the line duplication is done.

I doubt the need for rebuild of Cranbourne. The LX removal a Camm Rd ( road over) make it plain they do not want to lower the rail line.

Just do road over or under, for the Sth Gippy.
Plenty of examples in the area lately what "cheap" options there are, when no houses around.

cheers

The road over is the cheaper option; it could do similar to Melton Highway with the service roads connecting under the main road overpass. Cranbourne could use freshen up, see what happens.

Rail Over - Narre Waren-Cranbourne Road
Rail Under - Broad Oak Blvd
Rail Over - Casey Fields Blvd/ Berwick - Cranbourne Road
New Elevated Park & Ride Station here.
Rail Over - Morison Road
Rail Over - Clyde - Five Ways Road
New Clyde Station in this area, or 1Km further down at Clyde propper.

I believe the state has some land at Ballarto Road for a future stabling yard.

See how cheap and nasty it turns out just to have it built.
