The first stage of Geelong Fast Rail will deliver faster services.

Trains will travel via the Werribee corridor – the shortest and most direct route between Geelong and Melbourne – cutting travel times by up to 15 minutes.

To enable this, we are:

  • building new track dedicated to regional services between Werribee and Laverton
  • upgrading bridges over main roads
  • upgrading Werribee and Laverton stations
  • building new bridges and culverts over creeks and rivers
  • upgrading signalling and train control systems.

Construction is expected to be underway from 2023, subject to relevant approvals.
