Hume Region Passenger & Freight Rail Review Final Report

  • Year: 2011
  • Author: GHD
  • Publisher: RDA Hume
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Victoria

In 2011, The Hume RDA Committee commissioned Stage 1 of the Hume Region Passenger and Freight Rail Review project. The project undertook a review of both passenger and freight rail services within the region and was delivered by GHD.

The review identified the need for significant improvements due to a scarcity of passenger rail services within the region and a continuing decline in the use of rail to transport freight.

Key recommendations from the review included included:

  • Gauge standardisation of the Shepparton (Goulburn Valley) Line
  • Increase passenger rail services along the Shepparton and Albury/ Wodonga Lines
  • Track upgrades along the Shepparton and Albury/Wodonga Lines to achieve parity with Regional Fast Rail (RFR) standards (i.e. Class 1 track)
  • Additional passenger rail rolling stock
  • Investigate opportunities for a container terminal in the Shepparton region
  • Develop the GV Logistics Centre
  • Develop Intermodal Rail Terminals at the GV Logistics Centre and at LOGIC Wodonga
  • Increase the freight network to allow private sidings/spur lines to connect to the main network
  • Introduce a 'business carriage' on all trains within the Hume region.
