Here’s my 5 year plan for what needs to be done to Melbourne’s rail system. While some of the work would take more than 5 years to complete, I think it is feasible to have large parts of the plan finished within 5 years. I’m just posting a map of my plan for the moment, and I’ll go into the details of the changes (and costs) in the next few weeks.
2 Rowville via Chadstone and Monash
3 South Morang
4 Upfield to Roxburgh Park
7 4 tracks – Oakleigh to Huntingdale with flyovers
8 Flyovers at Jolimont yards to enable routing of trains to platforms 10-13
9 Duplication of Altona Branch
New Stations on existing lines
10 Newport West
13 10 minute off peak daytime frequencies on all lines (where possible), with 20 minute frequencies beyond Ringwood, Dandenong, Roxburgh Park, Greensborough, Keon Park and Sunshine
14 Sandringham line through routed with Werribee and Williamstown
15 City Loop to become unidirectional. Northern and Clifton Hill loops to run clockwise, and Caulfield and Burnley loops to run anticlockwise.
15 Eltham – Hurstbridge to be run as shuttle
