X’Trapolis 2.0 Trains

Under Delivery
X’Trapolis 2.0 Trains

This project involves the delivery of 25 new X’Trapolis 2.0 trains for Melbourne's metropolitan network.

These new trains are expected to boost reliability of current services and accommodate additional services in future, driven by the pipeline of rail capital projects underway across Melbourne. New rolling stock is expected also enable the ageing trains on the network to be retired by 2030.

The new trains are expected to have a minimum 60 per cent local content requirement, and be manufactured in Alstom's Ballarat facility.

The project also involves an upgrade to the Craigieburn Train Maintenance Facility, allowing the new trains to be efficiently housed and maintained.
