We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.


Work to duplicate a 1.2 kilometre single section of track between Heidelberg and Rosanna on the Hurstbridge line is complete, meaning more trains can operate on the line.

The duplication was completed as part of the Hurstbridge Rail Line Upgrade Stage 1, which also included the removal of level crossings on Grange Road in Alphington and Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna in addition to building a new station at Rosanna.

In August, two extra weekday services were added to the Hurstbridge line.

Work to fully complete the landscaping at Rosanna station will take place over coming months.

To be able to make improvements to the capacity of the Hurstbridge line, and power additional train services, the Level Crossing Removal Project has constructed a new substation at Eaglemont and upgraded three substations at Macleod, Fairfield and Preston.

In addition to these substations, a new Wayside Energy Storage System will be installed at Diamond Creek. These substations and Energy Storage System will be operated by Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM).

Find out more about substations and Energy Storage Systems.
