Transforming the suburban train network

Continuing our massive overhaul of our rail network.

High Capacity Metro Train at Flinders Street

This year’s Budget will upgrade some of our busiest suburban lines.

New trains for Sunbury

That includes transforming services to Sunbury, upgrading every station along the Line and enabling the rollout of new High Capacity Metro Trains.

This will help cut travel times and provide for an extra 113,000 passengers on the Sunbury Line during peak periods.

Cranbourne Line Duplication project

We’re also getting on with duplicating the Cranbourne Line. This $750 million project will double the number of trains in peak times and deliver trains every 10 minutes along the entire Cranbourne Line.

Upgrading the Hurstbridge Line

A further $547 million will deliver the next stage of the Hurstbridge Line Upgrade, duplicating 4.5 kilometres of track and constructing of bigger, better stations at Greensborough and Montmorency.
