30 new metro train services for Melbourne’s metropolitan area

The Victorian Government will add 30 new Metro train services in the peak, every week for transport on Melbourne’s north and west axis. The new services will be introduced on Craigieburn, Sunbury and Werribee lines.
These will contribute to the increase of the capacity by 27,000 passengers. Two peak services on the Hurstbridge line will be extended providing more services for passengers in Rosanna, Macleod, Watsonia, Greensborough, Montmorency and Eltham. The new services are made possible by the Government’s ongoing investment in new trains for Melbourne.
This project is the fourth metropolitan timetable change implemented by the Government, which has added more than 300 extra metro services and nearly 600 new regional services, delivering more trains, more often for people in Melbourne’s growing outer suburbs serviced by the V/Line network.
The Government has invested nearly USD 3 billion in new trains, including 19 new X’Trapolis trains and 65 new high-capacity metro trains.
“We’re running more trains at peak hour – when extra services and more room are needed most. The new services will make a real difference – getting people to work quicker and home sooner. We’re adding services and delivering the major projects our network needs – we’re getting on with the job,” Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan said.
