Building a rail
for Victoria

Only the Liberal Nationals will deliver European-style high speed rail right across Victoria

A Liberal Nationals Government will revolutionise Victoria’s passenger rail network by delivering European-style high speed rail right across Victoria.

Unplanned, unmanaged population growth is killing Melbourne’s liveability.

Daniel Andrews says it’s inevitable that Melbourne’s population will hit 8 million people in the next three decades. I don’t accept that. I say we need to decentralise our jobs and population throughout Victoria.

Bringing Victoria’s cities closer together with European-style High Speed Rail is the cornerstone of the Liberal Nationals plan to ease the population squeeze by decentralising our jobs and our population.

Reaching speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour, Victoria’s new high speed rail network will be the fastest in Australia.

The High Speed Rail project will see the rebuild of much of Victoria’s current Class 1 track to 200 kilometres per hour operation as well as major track improvements on every other passenger rail line.

European-style high speed rail across Victoria

  • Speeds up to 200km/h
  • Fastest trains in Australia
  • Faster, more comfortable, more reliable train service

Travel time savings to Melbourne

  • 32 minutes from Geelong
  • 45 minutes from Ballarat
  • 62 minutes from Traralgon
  • 117 minutes to Shepparton
  • 70 minutes to Bendigo

Only the Liberal Nationals will ease the squeeze on population growth and manage the right population growth in the right areas at the right time.
