Completion

Major construction is well underway for a vital upgrade, which will allow for trains every ten minutes on the Cranbourne line.

We’re fully duplicating the line by building eight kilometres of new track next to the existing one, and duplicating two rail bridges at Abbotts Road and Eumemmerring Creek.

We’re also removing the last four remaining level crossings between Cranbourne and the city and building a brand new station at Merinda Park in Lyndhurst.

Two level crossing removals are now underway:

Two more level crossings will be removed by 2025:

Hand in hand with the Metro Tunnel, the Cranbourne Line Upgrade will make road and rail travel easier, faster and more reliable for Melbourne’s south east.

This project will also deliver a new rail connection for the Port Rail Shuttle Network, allowing freight to be transported by train from Dandenong South through to the Port of Melbourne.
