Some Melbourne trains will run more frequently when new signalling is rolled out across 55 kilometres of the Metro Tunnel system, the state government says.
The next-generation signalling will operate 65 new trains for the Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line through the Metro Tunnel.
The $1 billion contract was awarded to CPB Contractors, the CIMIC Group's construction company and Bombardier Transportation, Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Tuesday.
Dedicated control centres will be built in Dandenong and Sunshine to support the system.
Mr Andrews said the new signalling would allow trains to run every two-to-three minutes.
"High Capacity Signalling means more trains, less waiting and services so often you don't need a timetable - you just turn up and go," he said.
