There is no point in this project going ahead at the current moment, REMEMBER the CEO of MetroTrains has stated there is no point in extending any metro rail services now as the core of Melbourne's rail network has no more time slots availible. THAT IS WHY THE METRO TUNNEL IS BEING BUILT (excuse the shouting). Only when the tunnel is completed can any service extensions be contemplated. If the extension to Clyde goes ahead all that will do is further overload a network that cannot take any more passengers anyway.I disagree. If the government had the balls to remove the remaining peak hour Frankston line trains from the City Loop as Metro wanted to do then it would free up a number of additional paths for trains to Dandenong & beyond.
The Liberal party is as usual with rail promising something they cannot deliver.
However with an election coming up in November & a number of marginal seats on the Frankston line it isn't going to happen. Not yet anyway.
What don't you agree with? I agree with the first point. The ALP should have removed all Frankston Trains from the loop.
And I agree with the second point. The Libs promising something they cannot or wont deliver.
May I remind you that the biggest thing that the Liberal Party has delivered in their 4 years apart from level crossing removals (just 2), is Waurn Ponds Station.
They had ripped the Original Melbourne Metro to build their ridiculous Clayton's version that would include a link to the airport, which would have provided no extra capacity and would have caused disruption to the Burnley and Caulfield loop tunnels. It would have been about 50% complete by now.
