Gippsland Line Upgrade underway

Work has begun on the $530 million Gippsland Line Upgrade, which will deliver more frequent, reliable train services for passengers in Victoria’s east.

Over the coming months, crews will drill over 50 boreholes and 120 test pits near the bridge and in various locations along the Gippsland line, to better understand ground conditions and soil quality.

Long weekend closure of the Ballarat Line

Works are continuing on the Ballarat Line Upgrade to deliver more frequent and reliable services.

V/Line is closing the Ballarat Line from Friday 9 March until the first service on Tuesday 13 March, and to minimise disruption, we are undertaking a range of works in the rail corridor, including earthworks and safety fence installation.

During these works, coaches will replace trains between Southern Cross Station, Ballarat, Wendouree, Ararat and Maryborough.

Wendouree and Bacchus Marsh drop-in sessions

We’re proposing to build a second platform and new tracks at Wendouree as part of the Ballarat Line Upgrade, delivering more benefits for passengers.

This will create enough space for trains to pass each other at Wendouree station for the first time, fixing the current problem that sees delayed services from Melbourne terminate at Ballarat and passengers forced onto replacement buses because trains can’t pass each other beyond Ballarat.

Closure of the Ballarat Line

The Ballarat rail line will be closed on Saturday 24 February and Sunday 25 February as work continues on the Ballarat Line Upgrade.

This closure will allow us to install safety fencing along the line, so work can begin on track duplication between Deer Park West and Melton. V/Line will also be doing maintenance works at the same time.

Toolern station

In November we consulted with residents, businesses and rail users on what is important to them about the new Toolern station on the Ballarat Line.

The most important aspects of the proposed station design for people included bus connections and access for pedestrians and cyclists.

Safety and security was also a high priority, as well as good facilities such as information displays and shelter.

During the closure, we installed safety fencing between Caroline Springs and Rockbank to enable track duplication work.
