Major construction is well underway on the Ballarat Line Upgrade.

The project will deliver more services and improved reliability for Melbourne’s outer-western suburbs, Bacchus Marsh, Ballan and Ballarat. In recent months we’ve made some major progress. 

In early May, while coaches replaced trains, the largest program of works yet took place on the Ballarat Line Upgrade.

Over the course of four days 200 of our team worked night and day at sites stretching from Caroline Springs to Millbrook.

More than 15 kilometres of safety fencing has now been installed, meaning we can get on with adding a second track between Caroline Springs and Melton.

Also underway is construction on the Rockbank Station rebuild, a new rail bridge over Toolern Creek, new stabling at Maddingley and a passing loop at Millbrook.

All of which gets us closer to more frequent and reliable services.
