Expanding Victoria's rail network

Regional Rail Link has increased the size of Victoria's rail network, with 90km of new track and dedicated regional lines from West Werribee Junction to Deer Park, then along the existing rail corridor from Sunshine to Southern Cross Station.

Removing major bottlenecks

Regional Rail Link has removed bottlenecks that cause train delays by untangling regional and metropolitan train services as they travel through Melbourne's west into the heart of the city.

Improving reliability of train services

Expanding the rail network will provide both metropolitan and regional commuters with more reliable train services.

Increasing the number of peak trains

Regional Rail Link has provided capacity for additional regional and metropolitan services during each morning and evening peak period, allowing more Victorians to use sustainable public transport.

Enabling future network expansions

Regional Rail Link has provided essential infrastructure that lays the foundations for future rail projects.

The project was completed on Sunday, 21 June 2015. Train services commenced operating on the Regional Rail Link line, including Wyndham Vale and Tarneit - following commissioning works, driver training and the progressive delivery of regional and metropolitan rolling stock.
