The Federal and Victorian governments today announced a $550 million upgrade of Victoria’s north-east rail corridor between Melbourne to Albury-Wodonga.
This will see some major improvements to the quality of the track and will result in it being converted to standard gauge between Seymour in Albury. Currently in this area there is one broad gauge track (with passing loops), running beside a standard gauge line used by CountryLink’s XPT train to Sydney.
The conversion will result in two standard gauge lines between Seymour and Albury, which will improve the reliability of V/Line services.
There will be no change to Shepparton and Seymour services which will continue to run on the broad gauge lines. Albury trains will use the existing single standard gauge line (which is currently being upgraded) between Seymour and Melbourne.
The upgrade of the line will be managed by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), which will develop a works program to start later this year. Works are expected to be complete in 2010.
As more details and timings of the line closure are confirmed, V/Line will keep customers up-to-date on replacement coach services.
