Upgrades to train stabling at Albury Station are required to help enable VLocity trains to run to Albury/Wodonga for the first time.

Project overview

The train stabling at Albury Station will be upgraded to accommodate three three-car VLocity trains.

The works include:

  • upgraded signalling, communications and train control systems
  • extended stabling tacks to accommodate the longer VLocity trains
  • improved train cleaning facilities
  • additional lighting, fencing, gates, CCTV and pathways.

Works will take place along the rail line between Albury Station and Bridge Street.

We’ll also deliver an accessible ramp at Albury Station, to improve access to the station for people of all abilities.

New trains for the North East Line

The Victorian Government is delivering six comfortable and modern long-haul VLocity trains for the first time on the North East Line.

Without adequate stabling facilities, trains need to travel long distances without passengers, reducing the number of services that can run on the line.

The VLocity is the newest and fastest train in the V/Line fleet, and has improved features including mobile signal boosters for better phone coverage and better accessibility for people with prams or mobility aids.

An upgrade to train stabling at Albury Station is required to house these trains, which are longer than the current fleet.

Next steps

Downer has been appointed to deliver the upgrades to stabling at Albury Station.

Works are expected to begin soon, and are targeted for completion by the end of the year.
