The Ballarat Line Upgrade was completed in early 2021, delivering 135 extra weekly services across the project for Ballarat and the growing communities along the line.

Trains now run every 20 minutes during the peak and every 40 minutes between the peaks. The project also delivered new and upgraded stations and better reliability.
