Doncaster Rail – construction has finally commenced!

A train line to Doncaster in Melbourne was first proposed in 1890, detailed planning commenced in 1969, and by 1972 the route was decided upon.

On 15 December 2013, after waiting 123 years for successive Victorian Governments to make good on their promises, the locals got tired of waiting, so the newly-formed Community Rail Authority took matters into their owns hands and starting building the track along Alexandra Parade, Fitzroy. Hey, at least it’s a start!
