The Victorian and Federal Governments are upgrading freight rail infrastructure at the Port of Melbourne.
The $50-million project will see the standardisation and duplication of rail lines between the Dynon terminals and the Port of Melbourne.
The upgrades will help move the increased freight volumes expected to come through the port when channel deepening is completed.
The Victorian Ports Minister, Tim Pallas, says it will mean more freight can travel by rail, instead of on the roads.
"This is the vital missing link into the Port of Melbourne," he said.
"It will double rail accessibility into the port. Importantly, what that will mean is we'll be able to get trains as long as 1.8 kilometres in length into the port directly when combined with the Dynon Port Rail Link Project."
Mr Pallas said the upgrade is vital to cope with growing volumes of freight coming through the port.
"Access to the port and the transfer of freight between Melbourne and Sydney will be made so much more efficient. And that's vital not only for Victoria's economy, but Australia's economy."
