Upfield line

We’re removing four level crossings on the Upfield Line

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, we’re removing four level crossings and building two new stations on the Upfield Line. While works take place, the Upfield train line will be disrupted from 8:30pm Monday 27 July to Sunday 15 November.

More than 1,000 people will work around the clock to elevate almost two kilometres of track using locally manufactured U-Trough bridge segments. We will also build new stations at Coburg and Moreland which will be complete by December 2020.

After the works are complete, drivers won‘t be delayed at Munro and Reynard streets, Moreland Road, or at the notorious Bell Street level crossing which frustrates 40,000 motorists every day.

We’re also installing a train turnback facility at Anstey station, meaning Upfield passengers between Macauley and Anstey can continue to catch the train to and from the city from Monday 3 August to Sunday 8 November
