Hurstbridge Line Upgrade

Enabling more train services, less crowding on peak trains, and better connections

Overview

The Hurstbridge Line Duplication will include:

  • a new Greensborough Station
  • upgrades to Montmorency Station
  • duplication of three kilometres of track between Greensborough and Montmorency
  • duplication of 1.5 kilometres of track between Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen
  • a new pedestrian connection at the Parkway Drain behind Diamond Valley College
  • upgrades to Platform 2 at Diamond Creek Station.

Construction will start in late 2020 and finish in 2022.

These works will allow more regular train services to run on the Hurstbridge line:

  • every 7 minutes from Greensborough
  • every 10 minutes from Montmorency and Eltham
  • every 20 minutes from Hurstbridge, Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen.
  • extra services along the line.

Stage 1 of the Hurstbridge Line Duplication was completed in 2018. It delivered a brand new station in Rosanna and removed two dangerous and congested level crossings at Grange Road in Alphington and Lower Plenty Road in Rosanna.
