Rowville Rail Feasibility Study

Timeframe: Stage 1 – 2011-2012 | Stage 2 – 2013-2014
Cost: $2 million feasibility study (includes Stage one and two)

Stage two Rowville Rail Study report now complete

The largest-ever investigation into the feasibility of a Rowville rail link is now complete, with Public Transport Victoria delivering the Stage two final report to government.

In 2010, the Victorian Government commissioned stage one of the largest-ever study into the feasibility of constructing a Rowville rail line. Stage one concluded in 2012 and determined that before a Rowville rail line could be provided, significant capacity increases to the rail network, in particular to the Dandenong rail corridor, would be required.

Stage two of the Rowville Rail Study commenced in 2013 and has continued the planning of a Rowville rail line and identified potential shorter term public transport improvements for the Rowville corridor. The Stage two report provides an update against each of the four key recommendations from stage one of the Rowville Rail Study.

PTV has identified opportunities for interim improvements to rail and bus services along the corridor, including 'turn up and go' 10 minute bus and train services. The report also proposes improvements to bus infrastructure in the area.

The Cranbourne-Pakenham Rail Corridor and Melbourne Rail Link projects have evolved since the completion of Stage one of the study and will deliver the capacity benefits needed to allow for a Rowville rail link.

The Stage two report is available on the publications page.
