Got a spare $billion? I'm afraid that's the likely ball park cost of a rail service as a 2nd line would need to be reinstalled so there's

1) Earthworks
2) New Stations
3) Signalling
4) Tunnel lowering as I think that the lines were slewed in the middle when Maxi containers were introduced
5) Blanket Bay 2nd line now a bikeway (major political battle)
6) Say rolling stock...

So it's hard to see anything happening but good that they're least considering it

Thanks for posting the news Wilson
