Melbourne rail projects

Rail projects in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Melbourne has a number of rail projects currently being undertaken to upgrade its rail system. Until recently, the Glen Waverley line was the only line to have a significant upgrade.
  • Bayside Rail Project: The Bayside Rail Project is a $115 million investment in improvements and upgrades along the Frankston line to enable X’Trapolis trains to operate on the Frankston line and provide safer, more comfortable stations.
  • Calder Park Train Stabling Facility: A new train stabling and possible future maintenance facility is proposed at Calder Park to help increase and maintain the frequency and reliability of Melbourne’s trains, particularly on the Sunbury line.
  • Cranbourne Pakenham Rail Upgrade: The Cranbourne Pakenham Rail Upgrade will deliver a 42 per cent capacity boost as well as improve reliability on one of Melbourne’s busiest rail corridors.
  • Digital Train Radio System: Digital Train Radio System is the metropolitan train driver communication system that will replace the existing Urban Train Radio System.
  • Investing in our rail network: The Victorian Government has invested more than $520 million through the 2013-14 State Budget to boost safety, reliability and capacity on Victoria’s public transport network.
  • Melbourne Metro Rail Project: This project will expand the City Loop, enabling major improvements in capacity, reliability and efficiency of train lines serving Melbourne’s growth areas.
