A NEW high-speed rail service would shuttle commuters from Maribyrnong into the city under an ambitious council plan.
The new sprinter train service would run from Newport to Southern Cross station with the potential to carry up to 113 passengers a carriage.
It would operate during morning and evening peak along the existing Newport goods rail line at speeds of more than 130km/h, Maribyrnong Leader reports.
Cr Michael Clarke wants the council to call on the State Government to fund a feasibility study into the service as the commuter crush worsens in the west.
Stations on the fast line could include Newport, South Kingsville, Bradmill, Brooklyn, Tottenham, West Footscray, Footscray, and then run directly to Southern Cross.
Public Transport Users Association president Daniel Bowen said the western suburbs were in desperate need of more public transport.
