The second stage of the Hurstbridge Line Duplication delivers further improvements for Melbourne’s north east, including more train services, less crowding on peak trains and better connections to public transport.

As part of the project, we built new modern stations at Greensborough and Montmorency and upgraded Diamond Creek Station. Works also included duplicating 2km of rail track between Greensborough and Montmorency stations and 1.5km between Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen stations to allow more trains to run more often.

Trains began running along the new duplicated track and stopping at the new stations by the end of April 2023.

Project finishing works will continue in 2024 as we complete stage one of the new shared walking and cycling path between Greensborough and Montmorency.
