Funding will upgrade the tracks near Caulfield Station, separating the Cranbourne-Pakenham and Frankston lines, enabling more trains and more frequent services.
These improvements will untangle the lines, preparing this crucial section of the network for the opening of the Metro Tunnel.
New signalling equipment will also make the junction safer and deliver a more reliable service for local passengers.
Improving interchange connections
This investment also includes $2 million to undertake planning to improve interchange connections at Caulfield Station, making it easier for commuters to make their train.
Not only will this investment deliver a safer, more reliable trip for local passengers, it will support around 600 jobs at the peak of construction.
