Victoria's Big Build has removed 17 dangerous and congested level crossings from the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines, with another ten to go by 2025. Victoria's Big Build has built seven new stations on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines, and will deliver another three stations on the Pakenham line by 2025.
