Overview

The Hurstbridge Line Upgrade involves duplicating the single-track section of rail line between Heidelberg and Rosanna, removing level crossings in Alphington and Rosanna and building a new train station at Rosanna.

The Grange Road level crossing in Alphington will be removed by lowering the railway line to pass under Grange Road. The Lower Plenty Road level crossing in Rosanna will be removed by raising the railway line to pass over Lower Plenty Road.

By removing a significant bottleneck on the Hurstbridge line, train services can be optimised, with flow-on benefits for the South Morang line.

This upgrade is being delivered by the North Eastern Program Alliance, involving Laing O'Rourke, Fulton Hogan and Jacobs.

Construction started in early 2017 and will be completed six months ahead of schedule, by mid 2018.
