Works notices

Completed works

Mernda Line

During 2020 and 2021, the new High Capacity Signalling technology was put through months of rigorous testing on a 4.5km section of track on the Mernda line, between Epping and South Morang stations.

These tests allowed us to run hundreds of scenarios to make sure the integration of the new technology, the existing signalling system and the train worked as expected.

West Footscray Station

A new passenger platform was built at West Footscray Station to allow for an increase in the number of services and help ease overcrowding at West Footscray, Middle Footscray and Footscray stations during the morning and afternoon peaks. The new platform also enables trains to start and finish at West Footscray.
