To further its advocacy for public transport improvements, the ETC has produced a series of factsheets highlighting its priorities for the region:
The Dandenong line with approximately 60,000 daily boardings is experiencing some of Melbourne’s highest levels of patronage growth.
Dandenong, 31.2 kilometres from Flinders Street, serves as a junction between the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines.
Since it links many of Melbourne’s main activity centres and growth areas, the Dandenong line has been nominated for an expansion in capacity and the ETC looks forward to its delivery as quickly as possible. With the rapid growth experienced this additional track is required to provide reliable express services and to facilitate efficient travel of V/Line regional services.
