Planning and Delivery of Urban and Suburban Services: opportunities for revisiting forgotten options

815 views

Published on

Presentation to Thriving Neighbourhoods 13 November 2012 on the need and obstacles to changing entrenched assumptions in Melbourne's heavy rail network with special reference to suburban heavy rail in Victoria in the wider contexts of intermodal transport requirements, an interstate comparator, successful reframing in another service type and emergence/systems/complexity theory, plus a postscript on how a third state sees things differently.

  17. 17. Platform Barriers• Childhood at the wrong end of Pascoe Vale• Platform tickets to see off interstate rellies• Breaking up Victorian Railways• Platforms that could connect instead divide• Each example is local but reveals a mindset which persists through restructurings• The big loser has been Myki ‣ that one more requirement that breaks the system
  18. 18. Choosing a few locations• ALBION (after Sunshine on Sunbury line)• Flemington Racecourse (RRL #bustitution) ‣ Western limit of trams• Pascoe Vale (childhood revisited)• Jolimont–MCG (more Myki nonsense)• Geelong (constraints on a local network) ‣ 1876 single track tunnel to everywhere south ‣ Standard gauge to Adelaideʼs near misses

H. Perrin, then Chief Engineer for Railway Construction. The article was headed “Bridge Building in Excelsis” and began: Spectacular feats of bridge-building are involved in the construction of an independent goods line between Broadmeadows and Albion, which was recently begun. From Around and About St. Albans Three deep gullies will have to be spanned. One of them, the Maribyrnong published in 1991 by River, demands the construction of a steel viaduct, a quarter of a mile long, 180 feet St. Albans History Society above the deepest point of the creek bed, and weighing 1650 tons. This viaduct, which will be about the same length as the Moorabool Viaduct - Victoria’s largest bridge - will, however, be considerably higher, high enough, in fact, to top the Flinders-street clock tower.
