Upgrading the Melton line

Melbourne’s west is booming – almost 300,000 people have moved to the western suburbs in the past decade.

Families in the west deserve a high‑quality public transport network that will allow them to leave the car at home, saving on petrol and parking. That is why we are investing $650 million to upgrade the Melton line, allowing bigger and better trains to run and increasing train capacity by up to 50%.

This investment is in addition to the Government's plans for the Melton Station rebuild and four level crossing removals committed as part of the 25 more level crossings by 2030.
