$1.5bil Geelong-Melbourne rail line likely

Posted on 10/11/2008  
The State Government is expected to include a 20km rail link between Geelong and Melbourne in a transport statement in early December. The $1.5 billion “Tarneit Line” will address a lack of public transport in the region and free up bottlenecks currently plaguing services to Geelong. It will mean trains will travel through Sunshine instead of Altona before reaching central Melbourne and may include new stations in growth areas like Derrimut, Truganina and Wyndham Vale.
