The Dandenong to Cranbourne Duplication project will see one of the longest stretches of single rail track in the Melbourne rail network duplicated.

The project is expected to comprise duplication of eight kilometres of track between Dandenong and Cranbourne stations and track upgrades around Caulfield and Dandenong stations. Planning for extending the Cranbourne line to Clyde will also be completed as part of the project.

In August 2018, the Victorian Government announced that it would commit $750 million towards the duplication and a further $7 million towards planning for the extension to Clyde. This follows a $572 million allocation in the 2018-19 Victorian Budget towards Cranbourne-Pakenham and Sunbury line upgrades which included funding for planning and development activities for the duplication project.

Infrastructure Victoria (IV) noted in its 30-year Infrastructure Strategy that extra capacity will be required on the Dandenong Rail Corridor in around 30 years. IV also recommended the extension of the Cranbourne line to Clyde within 10-15 years in its Strategy, estimating the cost between $1 billion to $3 billion. Beneficiary charges along with property development were noted by IV as potential funding sources for the extension.

Public Transport Victoria noted the Dandenong to Cranbourne Duplication as a project in Stage 3 of its 2012 Network Development Plan to be implemented within 15-years, while the extension to Clyde is noted as a future project.

The project is included under the broader Cranbourne Line capacity, which Infrastructure Australia identifies as a Priority Initiative in its Infrastructure Priority List.

The 2019-20 Victorian Budget commits $750 million to fully fund the project. $12.5 million has been allocated over the forward estimates to continue planning and development.

Construction is not expected to begin until at least 2021.
