AFTER seemingly endless years of discussions about upgrading the Ballarat train line, we are finally starting to see some results.
While Ballarat commuters might get frustrated with ongoing weekend works on the line causing cancellations, we are finally starting to see where the state government’s $518 million investment is going.
Director Regional Rail Revival Mark Havryluk said more than 500 people were working on the Ballarat line with the Deer Park to Melton extension expected to be completed by the end of next year.
"Ballarat passengers can look forward to more services and better reliability once the Ballarat line upgrade is complete," Mr Havryluk promised.
"There will be much-need extra services in the morning and afternoon peak and it will allow for trains every 40 minutes off-peak."
"It will enable more services on the line, and help improve the reliability of services, as trains will have more opportunities to pass each other, allowing them to recover sooner from disruptions.”
