Regional Rail Investment in Victoria

In the 2017-18 Budget, the Australian Government committed $500 million for regional rail in Victoria.  This investment will build a better regional network in Victoria with improvements to the North East Line, the Gippsland Line, the Geelong Line and a study into improving the Shepparton Line.  The package includes:

  • $195 million to upgrade the Gippsland Rail Line;
  • $100 million to upgrade the Geelong Rail Line;
  • $100 million to upgrade the North East Rail Line;
  • $95 million to upgrade the Avon River Bridge; and
  • $10 million to plan for future improvements to the Shepparton Rail Line.

The Australian Government is working with the Victorian Government to finalise these projects and implementation arrangements.
