With the aim of increasing peak hour services through Melbourne’s north-east, the second phase of upgrades to the Hurstbridge Line has been announced.
The project includes improvements to the Clifton Hill junction – to cater for an extra five-morning peak services to be run on the Mernda line. The $530 million project will also see Greensborough station rebuilt, with an implemented track between Diamond Creek and Wattle Glen stations and Greensborough and Montmorency stations.
Included in the first phase of Hurstbridge upgrade are removing the Grange Road level crossing in Alphington, removing the Lower Plenty Road level crossing in Rosanna and duplicating the track between Rosanna and Heidelberg stations.
