Mud, glorious mud

Despite years of regular shut downs on the Cranbourne/Pakenham line, for removal of level crossings, signalling upgrades, power upgrades, Metro tunnel… yet there are still mud holes like this on the line.

This can’t be good – not for ride quality, and not for the trains using this track.

It’s been an issue for years between Oakleigh and Clayton (and no doubt other sections).

The upgrades are welcome, but it really is surprising that they haven’t resolved this.

theyll never fix the problem. when they changed from wooden to concrete they used a cheaper installation technique and damaged the road bed, only permanent solution is to rip it up and start again
