Cranbourne Line Upgrade

Doubling services on the Cranbourne line with trains every 10 minutes during peak

Overview

Eight kilometres of single track from Dandenong to Cranbourne would be duplicated as part of the project.

This would remove the bottlenecks that cause delays and allow the number of train services to be doubled during peak times, delivering trains every ten minutes along the whole Cranbourne line.

Tracks would also be upgraded around Caulfield station, where the Frankston line splits off from the Cranbourne-Pakenham line, and around Dandenong station where the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines separate.

This would help move trains more quickly through these stations, cutting delays and getting people home sooner.

The project would create more than 1,000 jobs. Detailed planning and procurement would start next year, with construction to start in 2021 and finish by 2023.
