New Stations And More Trains For Melbourne’s North East

30 April 2023

Trains will be stopping at the new Greensborough and Montmorency stations, after the Andrews Labor Government completed an intensive construction blitz that will deliver 40 extra services each week for passengers on the Hurstbridge Line.

Stations are open with the final stages of testing to take place ahead of trains running later today.

Once the new timetable comes into effect on 28 May, the completion of the Hurstbridge Line Duplication will add more than 75 extra services across the Hurstbridge, Mernda, Belgrave and Lilydale and Alamein lines.

The new stations at Greensborough and Montmorency offer better weather protection, safer connections to the surrounding area and access for people of all abilities.

Platform 2 at Diamond Creek Station was also upgraded during the six-week construction blitz, and a new signalised pedestrian crossing behind Diamond Valley College will make trips to school safer for students.

A new walking and cycling path will be built between Greensborough and Montmorency stations by the end of the year, connecting to the Plenty River Trail with a new pedestrian crossing.

Parking at Greensborough Station will become easier for train passengers, with early works underway on a new 100 space multi-deck car park and bus interchange set to open by late 2024.

Whether it’s the North East Link, Hurstbridge Line Upgrade, removing 21 level crossing removals or upgrading Fitzsimons Lane, the Labor Government is delivering a better transport system for Melbourne’s north-east.

New timetables and more information are available at ptv.vic.gov.au.

“Victorians deserve a great public transport system they can rely on to get them where they need to go - and that’s exactly what we’ve delivered for thousands of people in Melbourne’s north-east.”

“The Hurstbridge Line Duplication brings massive benefits to Melbourne's rapidly growing north-east, delivering more train services and less crowding on peak services, as well as brand new modern stations.”

Quote attributable to Member for Eltham Vicki Ward

“We’d like to thank locals for their patience while crews worked over the past six weeks to build new stations and carry out track duplication, so we can deliver better train services along the Hurstbridge Line.”
