Sunbury Line Upgrade
The $2.1 billion Sunbury Line Upgrade will enable more modern trains to run on the line.
A range of enhancements are needed on the Sunbury Line to take full advantage of the extra capacity created by the Metro Tunnel and for more modern trains to run.
The Sunbury Line Upgrade will see various upgrades within the rail corridor extending from Sunbury to Footscray.
- power upgrades between Sunbury and the Metro Tunnel entrance near South Kensington station
- platform extensions extending from Sunbury to Footscray.
- installation of wheelchair boarding platforms at eight stations
- train stabling upgrades at Sunbury, Calder Park and Watergardens.
Sunbury Line Upgrade was funded in the Victorian Budget. Works began in 2019 and the project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
At Watergardens station we will be extending platforms to fit more modern trains and installing wheelchair boarding pads to improve accessibility. The train stabling yard at Watergardens station will also be expanded to fit more modern trains. Learn more.
At Calder Park, we will be expanding train stabling facilities to fit the longer, more modern trains. These facilities are used to maintain and store trains when not in service. Learn more.
