Geelong Fast Rail

This year has shown spending time with those we love is the most important thing.

It’s why making sure passengers have a fast, reliable rail connection between Geelong and Melbourne matters more than ever.

This Budget delivers $2 billion towards Geelong Fast Rail – matching the Commonwealth’s contribution to the project.

Funding will go toward preparing a business case and design as part of the First Stage of work, supporting over 2,800 jobs at the peak of construction.

Once complete, this project will mean fewer stops, faster trips and less crowded trains. It’ll also reduce reliance on the Princes Freeway corridor. Most importantly, it’ll mean less time commuting – and more time spent with the people you love.
