Laverton Rail Upgrade project

In 2008 the Laverton Rail Upgrade project was announced, to provide facilities for short starter trains to terminate at Laverton station. An additional citybound platform was built on the north side of the station, and an additional track was laid towards Altona to allow the services to operate independently of the main line. In addition, the station buildng was upgraded, and a new overhead footbridge provided. For more details see Laverton.
