Stage 3 of the Shepparton Line Upgrade will enable faster and more frequent services.
Acciona Rail and KBR are delivering Stage 3 as part of an alliance with Rail Projects Victoria and V/Line.
- signalling upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton to allow 9 weekday return services
- track upgrades between Seymour and Shepparton to allow trains to travel faster
- expanded stabling for VLocity trains to support more services
- a further 1.1km extension of the Murchison East crossing loop to allow a 1200m freight train and two 6-car VLocity trains to pass each other.
Site investigations are taking place to inform the design of the track and the signalling upgrades required.
Stage 3 of the Shepparton Line Upgrade is due to be complete in late 2023.
