Major Works To Boost Geelong Line Reliability

Transport Pillar

Major track, signal and platform upgrades are scheduled for the Geelong rail line during the Easter school holidays.

During the blitz, crews will be working around the clock to upgrade a bridge at Little River, install high-voltage signalling at Corio and replace a large section of track at North Geelong.

There will also be platform upgrades at South Geelong Station and minor repairs and maintenance at Geelong Station.

Minor upgrades will also be carried out at the Regional Rail Link junction at Sunshine, where trains from the Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo lines merge. This will help improve the reliability for Geelong line trains.
