It's a shame they're not going to build a station at South Yarra. I imagine one will be built in a few years time and at great expense when the government realises one is needed there to help with connections.

And even if the new stations "CBD North" and "CBD South" are indeed called that - there's no way the people of Melbourne will use those nouns. They will always be Melbourne Central and Flinders Street. Even in Perth where the one station has two names (Perth station & Perth Underground station) even just says 'Perth Station'.



The government should start planning Metro 2 right now as well. As soon as this tunnel is done all resources should be put into construction Metro 2, with it hopefully running east to west and providing excellent transport for the new Fisherman's Bend super-development.

Is that it. Am I missing something here? This rather large metro project will result in just 2 new stations not currently served by rail - Domain and Parkville? Seems a waste

It takes the Pakenham/Cranbourne lines out of the Caulfield Loop (shared with Frankston and Sandringham) as well as the Sunbury Line out of the Northern Loop (shared with Werribee, Williamstown, Upfield and Craigieburn Lines). It also adds a station in Arden, although I'm not sure how close it is to North Melbourne station.

Wiki says this will not be completed until 2026. Is this true ? And will this be like Brisbane Crossrail, wherein the opposition party gains party, scuttles the other party's rail plan, then, engineers its own rail scheme (adding years more to the project) ?

Unsure if this has been discussed on here, but what does everyone think of Sky Rail? I'm all for it, I don't live nearby but it would greatly benefit my route to work.

So with all the benefits of rail over (no disruptions, no expensive engineering and construction to deal with high water table, no expensive service removals etc), do the protesters even have a point?

Sydney is full of "skyrail" style train lines, usually 1 storey above the road and grade separated. It is absolutely a non-issue here.
I am surprised by some of the reactions in Melbourne...maybe because it is "new", even though I am sure I have seen similar lines down there (that line through Collingwood station for instance)
Melbourne seems to be having "growing pains"...issues with apartments in "nice" suburbia, new transport infrastructure for example.

I also think that level crossing removal project is vital and much needed to reduce the levels of congestion and accidents and I support this. But I also understand the residents' fears over gantry cranes above or near their houses and, indeed, there's a need for proper business case and detailed consulation for such thing:

So here we go - a few more tours of Melbourne public transport by me.

First up is a train ride - from Flinders Street Station to Box Hill Station on an express train.






Next up is a tour of Box Hill station and the tram stop (the terminus for tram number 109).
