Love how the media shows its colours. Channel 7 news report months ago (on Youtube) about the "huge" cost blow-out of the Metro tunnel pre-works, something in the nature of $95 million and therefore t ...

Much as I'm seriously disappointed to see more money wasted on yet another "congestion busting" freeway widening that will fill up in no time, due to induced demand, I've read somewhere (sorry can't r ...

Somewhere on this forum, which I cannot find after doing a reasonable amount of searching, is a comment about how duplicating the Altona line is constrained by roads on either side of the formation.

[quote=TOQ-1]The last social media post was an edited video that was uploaded Thursday night. This post states they were going from TBM Assembly to launch preparation.

[quote=Heihachi_73]Just going to bump this for now, asking the very simple question: "Where are they now?"

With Yarra Trams happily rebuilding Z3s, it seems absurd that the two B1s have seemingly v ...
