Melton rail line revamp planned

Melton rail line revamp planned : According to The Network Development Plan – Metropolitan Rail, Caroline Springs will also have an operating train station by 2016.

PTV Chief Executive Ian Dobbs said the plan included a program of operational changes, track duplications and extensions, new trains and stations, high capacity signalling, and new stabling and maintenance facilities.

Key highlights of the plan include eliminating single-line sections through duplication of tracks to Melton; major rail extensions including to Melbourne Airport and electrification of the network to Melton.

Mr Dobbs said his was a comprehensive, integrated strategy which details all of the areas needed to grow the capacity and the reach of our rail network.

“With train patronage expected to double by 2031, Victoria cannot afford a piecemeal approach to planning and developing projects.”

The initiatives in the plan will provide capacity for an extra 50,000 people to travel in the peak period within 10 years and 130,000 people in the peak hour within 20 years.

“I believe this plan represents the most comprehensive strategy for the development of

Melbourne’s rail network in more than 40 years,” Mr Dobbs said.
