About the project

The Murray Basin Rail Project will deliver a $440 million upgrade to improve Victoria’s rail freight network, providing the Murray Basin area with better rail freight services and more choices for less cost.
The project involves standardising and upgrading the 1,055 kilometres of rail track which services the Murray Basin region in Victoria’s north-west.
The works will provide better rail access between the Murray Basin and Victoria's major ports in Portland, Geelong and Melbourne. It will also improve the performance of the rail network and increase the amount of rail freight able to be moved.
