The Tottenham to Albury section of Inland Rail will upgrade 305km of existing rail corridor between metropolitan Melbourne and the Victoria-NSW border at Albury-Wodonga.
Due to its scale and complexity, this project is broken into two stages:
Stage One: Beveridge to Albury
The first stage of the project is the enhancement of 12 sites along the North East Rail Line from Beveridge to Albury. Work on this section of the alignment is now underway.
Stage Two: Metropolitan Melbourne
The second stage of the project involves works in metropolitan Melbourne. This stage is temporarily on hold while a study is undertaken to determine the location, configuration and timing of a new intermodal terminal in Melbourne.
Modifying existing structures to support transport of double-stacked freight trains
Stage 1: reference design
Stage 2: temporarily on hold
From North to South, the Tottenham to Albury project will follow the existing rail corridor running close to the Hume Highway from the Murray River at Wodonga to the outskirts of Melbourne. It then shares the Regional Victorian rail corridor (V/Line) from Seymour to Beveridge.
We have developed an interactive map of the current project design. Drop a pin on the map to add your comment. Your feedback will help us get a better understanding of key issues from a community perspective.
As part of the Tottenham to Albury project, work will be undertaken along the existing rail corridor through Mitchell Shire.
There are seven sites in the Mitchell Shire that require increased height and width clearances to safely accommodate the double-stacked trains that will be using this line:
- Broadford-Wandong Road bridge, Wandong
- Hamilton Street bridge, Broadford
- Short Street bridge, Broadford
- Marchbanks Road bridge, Broadford
- Hume Highway bridge, Tallarook
- Seymour-Avenel Road bridge, Seymour
- Hume Highway bridge, Seymour
Planning and approvals are now underway.
North East Victoria
As part of the Tottenham to Albury project, work will be undertaken along the existing rail corridor through North East Victoria.
There are five sites in North East Victoria that require rail track to be lowered or bridges to be raised to allow safe clearance for the double-stacked trains that will be using this line:
- Euroa Station Precinct, Euroa
- Benalla Station Precinct, Benalla
- Beaconsfield Parade Bridge, Glenrowan
- Wangaratta Station, Wangaratta
- Murray Valley Highway, Barnawartha North
Work on this section is now underway.

Have your say on the Planning Scheme Amendment!
Before works start on the Inland Rail Tottenham to Albury project, we will make a request to the Victorian Minister for Planning to amend the planning schemes for the Whittlesea, Mitchell, Benalla, Strathbogie, Wangaratta and Wodonga local government areas.
