Perspective Views Demo
Broadmeadows to Melbourne Airport Rail Link
In the 1980’s the Melbourne Metropolitan Transit Authority planned for a potential railway from Broadmeadows to Melbourne Airport following mostly vacant land under the flight path. None of the possible railways to the airport have been built, so far.
Using Geocomp 5.3 software, the MTA Planning Division and Survey Computing Consultants jointly designed:
the proposed alignment
the boundaries of the land to be reserved
models of the existing and design terrain
The simulation shows the view from the drivers’ window of the design surface using perspective views of the cross sections at 100m intervals. The apparent speed approximates the design train speed when the demo is run on a 286 computer.
