Major works on the Mernda and Hurstbridge lines

November and December

More trains and better connections

The second stage of the Hurstbridge Line Duplication will deliver more train services, less crowding on peak trains and better connections to public transport in Melbourne's north east, as well building brand new stations at Greensborough and Montmorency.

As part of the Victorian State Government's commitment to remove 85 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025, we're also removing four level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Murray Road and Cramer Street in Preston as well as building brand new stations at Bell and Preston.
