We’re improving road safety and traffic flow in Bacchus Marsh with two major upgrades
Work to duplicate a 1.2 kilometre single section of track between Heidelberg and Rosanna on the Hurstbridge line is now complete, meaning more trains can operate on the line.
The project also included the removal of level crossings on Grange Road in Alphington and Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna, in addition to building a new station at Rosanna.
Two extra weekday services have been added to the Hurstbridge line now the duplication is complete and the level crossings have been removed.
The first stage was delivered in mid-2018.
The second stage of this upgrade would include:
- a brand new train station at Greensborough
- the duplication of three kilometres of track between Greensborough and Montmorency, and
- the duplication of 1.5 kilometres of track between Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen.
This would allow more train services to run during the morning peak. At Greensborough, trains would run every six and a half minutes, every 10 minutes at Eltham and Montmorency, and every 20 minutes at Hurstbridge, Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen. Two extra express services would also be added to the Hurstbridge line.
The Eltham Trestle Bridge would be protected. It is the last remaining timber bridge on Melbourne’s electric train network, which has local heritage protection and is an important part of the area’s character.
Construction would start in 2020 and finish by 2022.
Two level crossings removed, a new station at Rosanna and two extra weekday services for the Hurstbridge line
The Hurstbridge Line Upgrade is being delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project. Visit the project website for more information.
