Passengers travelling from Melbourne to Bendigo and Echuca in the state's north are set to benefit from faster and more frequent train services as part of a $300 million regional rail funding boost from the Victorian and Federal governments.
The extra funding for the Bendigo and Echuca Line Upgrade will help to deliver a modernised electronic train ordering system – the first of its kind in Victoria – enabling faster and more frequent services to Echuca and more services between Epsom, Eaglehawk and Bendigo.
Most important to travellers, the upgrade will allow the current single daily frequency to be tripled, with the number of week-day return services to Echuca doubling (to twice daily).
The new services to Echuca will be operated by Victoria’s VLocity trains, introduced in 2003. V/Locity trains are diesel multiple units designed to provide fast connections between Melbourne and key regional cities in Victoria. VLocity trains operate most interurban and some long distance trains in the state.
