Removing 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne
Eight kilometres of single track from Dandenong to Cranbourne will be duplicated as part of the project. This will 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 will 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 will help move trains more quickly through these stations, cutting delays and getting people home sooner.
Duplicating the Cranbourne line also paves the way for it to be extended to Clyde, with $7 million being invested to complete planning for the new rail link as part of the duplication project.
The project will create more than 1,000 jobs. Detailed planning and procurement will start next year, with construction to start in 2021 and finish by 2023.
