We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossing at Gap Road and enabling bigger, more modern trains to run on the Sunbury Line as part of the works in the Sunbury Station precinct.
Rail improvements in the Sunbury Station precinct including platform extensions, train stabling modifications and rail track and power upgrades, will allow bigger and more modern trains to run on the Sunbury Line. This will create space for 113,000 more passengers every week when the Metro Tunnel is completed in 2025.
Coordinating the Gap Road level crossing removal and the Sunbury Line Upgrade projects allows us to bring the level crossing removal forward from 2025 to 2022 so we can get traffic in the Sunbury CBD moving sooner.
This will also minimise disruption to the local Sunbury community while improving train services, road congestion and safety.
