Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
98
Title
Duplicate train tracks between Gowrie and Upfield
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the existing single track between Gowrie and Upfield Stations on the Upfield railway line is severely limiting that line’s capacity to have more frequent services. Currently the service is only running every 18-20 minutes in peak periods.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government and the Minister of Public Transport, the Hon Melissa Horne MP, to urgently duplicate the single train track between Gowrie and Upfield to allow the Upfield railway line to run more frequent services, reduce the number of late running services, and prevent trains from being terminated at Coburg station when services are unexpectedly delayed.
