Geelong Advertiser --> Plans for Torquay rail link revealed, but cost remains a mystery

Quote
PLANS to build a train track to Torquay have been made public for the first time, but its price tag remains a mystery.

A feasibility study commissioned by the Liberal State Government three years ago details several potential projects to cope with rapid suburban expansion at Armstrong Creek and along the Surf Coast, and the infrastructure needed to make the rail link a reality.

Under the potential roll-out, tracks would be laid from a new rail junction veering off from the Waurn Ponds line between the Surf Coast Highway and Barwarre Rd to a new station at Armstrong Creek.

Investigating the provision of rail services to Drysdale and Torquay (2013 - )
http://ptv.vic.gov.au/projects/rail-projects/rail-feasibility-studies/#drysdale

As part of the 2013-14 State Budget, funding has been provided to determine the feasibility of:

    providing a passenger rail connection between Geelong and Torquay
    reinstating passenger rail services between Geelong and Drysdale along the former Queenscliff railway alignment

The feasibility study will aim to identify what would be required to provide these services, outline proposed solutions to address any identified issues and determine the cost required to do so.

The study will undertake high level site investigations, prepare concept designs, service plans and patronage estimates, determine delivery cost estimates and project benefits, and provide an economic appraisal.
