There are renewed calls for the Geelong and Wyndham rail lines to be seperated as part of the proposed Melbourne Airport rail link.
The Victorian government is yet to officially announce its preferred option for the project, but there have been reports it is considering using the Metro Tunnel to get passengers between Melbourne's CBD and Tullamarine directly.
However the Rail Futures Institute says that would be bad news for regional commuters.
President John Hearsch said without extra tracks between the CBD and Sunshine, more frequent, reliable and faster rains would be off the agenda for many years.
"The existing tracks (between the CBD and Sunshine) will be very quickly at full capacity," he said.
"There wont' be sufficient capacity on the corridor to run all the trains that are going to be needed to service the Wyndham area and to give Geelong the fast trains which it has been promised for a long time.
"Our plan transfers Geelong tains to the new fast tracks between Southern Cross and Sunshine, and also provides additional express tracks between Sunshine and Wyndham Vale
