Train in vain
A short review of long wait for the Doncaster Train
Doncaster Rail Study (2014)
The Doncaster Rail Study is an independent investigation into heavy rail connection from the Melbourne CBD to Doncaster. $6.5 million has been allocated to examine a number of options for a high quality heavy rail link for communities within the Manningham, Boroondara, Yarra, Whitehorse, Banyule and Maroondah municipalities.
Doncaster is an important commercial and civic centre within Melbourne’s North East and the City of Manningham. Although there has been significant growth in patronage of recently upgraded bus services from Doncaster to the CBD, the City of Manningham remains the only metropolitan Melbourne municipality without train or tram services.
