The Sunbury Line Upgrade will maximise the benefits of the Metro Tunnel Project, allowing trains to run more frequently and carry more passengers.

A combination of power upgrades and platform extensions is needed to enable bigger, more modern trains to run on the line, which will create room for 113,000 more passengers every week during peak.

The Sunbury Line Upgrade will include:

  • removal of the Gap Road level crossing
  • power upgrades between Sunbury and South Kensington
  • platform extensions at 10 stations between Sunbury and Footscray
  • wheelchair boarding platforms at 8 stations
  • train stabling upgrades at Sunbury, Calder Park and Watergardens.

Construction began in 2019 and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
