VIC BUDGET 2018-19: MORE TRAINS AND UPGRADES TO OUR RAIL CORRIDOR
The 2018-19 Budget continues the Labor Government’s overhaul of Victoria’s public transport system – delivering safer, more frequent, accessible travel options now, and planning for the growing needs of our suburbs.
This includes additional train services for our community between Dandenong and the city from 7pm to 10pm once the last level crossings between Dandenong and the City are removed later this year.
The Cranbourne/Pakenham to Sunbury corridor will also be transformed as part of the largest rail corridor upgrade in Victoria’s history. The Budget delivers $571.5 million for power and signalling upgrades from the city to Cranbourne and Pakenham and work to prepare for new high capacity metro trains to run from the south-east to Sunbury via the city.
