Sunbury line upgrade
Major track, power and station platform upgrades are underway as part of the Sunbury Line Upgrade, to link the future Metro Tunnel with Melbourne’s newest fleet of high capacity trains.
This project will allow the network to take full advantage of the extra capacity created by the Metro Tunnel project.
Upgrades to existing lines include overhead electrification works between Sunbury and South Kensington and at South Yarra, platform extensions between Sunbury and Footscray, and installation of wheelchair boarding platforms. The project also includes signalling power upgrades and additional infrastructure at Calder Park sidings.
