Southern Cross

Entrance to the new platforms at Southern Cross Station

Works finished in the Southern Cross work package at the end of 2013.

On 22 December 2013, Geelong line services began using dedicated V/Line tracks between South Kensington and the new platforms 15 and 16 at Southern Cross Station.

Construction partners

Activate (a joint venture between John Holland and Coleman Rail) carried out the main track and engineering works between Southern Cross Station and Moonee Ponds Creek.

Alstom were responsible for Melbourne Yard works, with other work carried out by Metro.

See the scope of works.

Did you know?

We are building dedicated regional tracks from West Werribee Junction to Deer Park, then along the existing rail corridor from Sunshine to Southern Cross Station to expand the rail network and provide passengers with more reliable train services.
