$1 billion in upgrades for Cranbourne rail line

The Cranbourne rail line in Victoria will undergo a $1 billion upgrade in 2020 to enable services every ten minutes.

The line works include duplicating 8km of track between Dandenong and Cranbourne to remove the single-track bottlenecks that stop trains being able to pass one another and the removal another level crossing. 

Additional rail bridges at Abbotts Road and Eumemmerring Creek will be built, as well as the additional of two new platforms and better facilities at Merinda Park Station. 

The upgrade will also include the removal of the remaining level crossings between Dandenong and Cranbourne: Webster Street in Dandenong; Greens Road in Dandenong South; Evans Road in Lyndhurst; and Camms Road in Cranbourne.

With work already underway to build a new road bridge at Evans Road, the Greens Road level crossing in Dandenong South will be the next to go.

Located in a commercial and industrial area, the Greens Road level crossing will be removed by building a new rail bridge over the road, with detailed investigations confirming this as the most suitable design.

Work will start in 2020 and the crossing will be gone by the end of 2022.

The duplication works will be completed by 2023 and all level crossings along the line removed by 2025.
