Major maintenance and renewal works on the Bendigo, Swan Hill and Echuca lines are complete, with replacement of nearly 40,000 sleepers and 25,000 tonnes of ballast between Sunbury to Swan Hill.
During the past four weeks, more than 1500 V/Line staff and contractors worked around-the-clock upgrading track, strengthening bridges and removing mud holes to keep services safe and reliable.
Nine rail bridges were also strengthened, including installation of a new deck on the Taradale viaduct, and waterproofing work on the Malmsbury viaduct and Forest Creek Bridge in Castlemaine.
Other work included repairing the roof at Woodend Station, removing mud holes between Eaglehawk and Dingee, signalling works on the Bendigo line and upgrades to the pedestrian subway at Macedon Station.
The $46 million maintenance and renewal package is part of $1.3 billion the Andrews Labor Government provided in the Victorian Budget 2016/17 to improve regional public transport, including more than more than 170 new services, 27 new VLocity carriages and $198 million to rebuild the capacity of V/Line.
