Melbourne’s Rail Loop (Sydney metro copy)

September 5, 2019

[piano music] Transforming Melbourne! A brand new rail loop Clearing the old radial network and busting congestion This is Melbourne’s rail loop, a quality rail service never seen in Australia. Right now more than 100 trains come into Melbourne CBD in the busiest hour of the morning peak Built up over 160 years, our rail network is the most radial in the world Trains from 13 lines from all across Melbourne converge into the CBD. One delay, and you’ll miss your connection on another line, Overcrowded carriages, full platforms trains not spaced evenly, Something significant must be done. That’s why we must prepare for 30 years of construction, a brand new standalone rail loop, Melbourne’s rail loop, a solution to removing our reliance gang via the CBD to access jobs together Together with the additional airport rail lines, Melbourne’s rail loop will remove thousands of people of suburban trains all across Melbourne. In the morning peak, that would mean 60% less than now. The new spiderweb of our public transport network! Reducing crowding making room for an extra 100,000 passengers per hour across Melbourne We have new suburban stations and the capacity for a metro train every couple minutes in each direction This means less crowding at Flinders, Southern cross and North Melbourne Faster travel makes it easier to get to growth areas That means new choices for jobs education and more jobs The Melbourne rail loop clears our biggest downfall our radial rail network All our rail lines funnel traffic into Melbourne by how they converge towards one point Under streets these packed trains cause congestion as they cause issues across the whole network making the network away from the radial design with the new Metro Rail loop would mean we can allocate more trains to bypass the CBD in Addition the airport rail line would mean an extra six new metro trains per hour a train every 10 minutes between Melbourne and the airports Melbourne rail loop is being delivered in four stages Construction will be underway for the Northwest and southeast Suburbs with services to start in 2032 with a train every 4 minutes in the pink We have no idea when stages 3 & 4 will happen? Expect it to open in 2050. Helping to reduce the reliance on going through the CBD to access jobs across, Melbourne Melbourne trail loop builds the foundation for the future

    If interchange points are positioned so as to benefit the most people, they should be somewhere along the middle of the radial lines, not the outer reaches. For example if you wanted to travel from Clifton Hill to Footscray using the proposed line, you'd have to go out to Broadmeadows, change at Sunshine, and then come back in again – pointless! If they reverted to an alignment similar to the former Inner & Outer Circle lines it would benefit more people. Also a shame that key destinations like Doncaster and Melbourne Airport would only be accessible by a fairly circuitous route!
