The Andrews Labor Government promised 'More Trains More Often', and that is exactly what we are delivering.

The Government is investing an additional $986 million for the construction of 25 new world-class trains right here in Victoria.

The project is estimated to create 750 jobs across the state with the 60% local content requirement providing certainty and prosperity for Victorians across the supply chain.

This latest investment is part of the Government's $7.5 billion investment in Victoria's rolling stock since 2015.

The Andrews Government is committed to upgrading infrastructure, increasing capacity and providing better transport for all Victorians- especially in our fastest-growing suburbs.

With the Government's prior infrastructure investments including the Sunbury and Ballarat Line Upgrades, Geelong Fast Rail and Melbourne Airport Link rail transport in the West will be among Victoria's best.
