The Western Rail Plan sets out the future investments Victoria needs for a fast, high-capacity rail network servicing our growing suburbs and growing regional cities.
Planning is needed for the following three major connected projects:
- Two new electrified metro rail lines to Melton and Wyndham Vale. A potential connection from Wyndham Vale to Werribee would also be considered.
- Increased track capacity between Sunshine and the CBD to cater for faster and more frequent metro and regional trains.
- Major investment in the Geelong and Ballarat lines to run trains faster than 160km/h.
