Metro Rail Capacity Project
The Metro Rail Capacity Project is a critical city-shaping project that will overhaul Melbourne's rail network, resulting in major improvements in capacity, reliability and travel times across the bulk of the metropolitan rail lines.
In November 2013, the Melbourne Metro project was officially renamed as the Metro Rail Capacity Project. The new name better reflects the significant capacity benefits that the project will provide to the Sunbury, Upfield, Craigieburn, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Sandringham, Frankston, Werribee and Williamstown lines. On day one the project will enable an additional 20,000 passengers to travel on Melbourne's rail network in the peak hour, as well as relieving congestion on St Kilda Road trams.
The project will also release freight and V/Line capacity between South Yarra and the city and will enable the delivery of the South East Rail Link (SERL).
