The Gippsland Line Upgrade is the centrepiece of a $1.45 billion Regional Rail package announced in the 2017/18 Victorian State Budget.

The Upgrade will involve:

- duplicating track and building a new second platform at Bunyip and Longwarry stations;
- upgrading 20 level crossing detection devices;
- extending track duplication near Moe further East towards Traralgon;
- improving drainage at Morwell River;
- extending the crossing loop at Morwell;
- a new second platform at Morwell Station;
- duplicating 9 kilometres of track between Morwell and Traralgon;
- installing modern rail signalling and building a new second platform at Traralgon Station; and
- relocating train stabling at Traralgon.

To deliver the Gippsland Line Upgrade, a local project office will be established in the Latrobe Valley.

An additional $95 million has been allocated for Stage 2 of the Upgrade, which will duplicate the Avon River Bridge.

Separately, the Traralgon, Morwell, Moe and Trafalgar station amenities are currently being upgraded through the Gippsland Rail Corridor Station Upgrade Program being managed by VicTrack.
