The Shepparton Line Upgrade will be delivered in 3 stages.

Stage 1 (now complete), included:

  • 10 extra train services a week between Melbourne and Shepparton

Stage 2 (underway, due for completion in late 2022), includes:

  • platform extensions at Mooroopna, Murchison East and Nagambie stations
  • a crossing loop extension near Murchison East to enable trains to pass each other
  • upgrades to 59 level crossings between Donnybrook and Shepparton
  • stabling to house VLocity trains
  • a business case for delivering 9 return services a day between Shepparton and Melbourne.

Stage 3 includes:

  • signalling upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton to enable 9 weekday return services
  • expanded stabling for VLocity trains to support more services
  • track upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton to enable trains to travel faster.
