WORKS at Wallan and Donnybrook stations can finally begin following a $235 million agreement for the North East rail line.
The two stations are set for a revamp alongside the track they run along.
New Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormick and Victorian Minister for Public Transport and Major Projects Jacinta Allan signed an agreement on Friday in relation to inland rail.
As part of the Regional Rail Revival program, a joint Victorian government and federal government steering committee was established to look at the work needed to upgrade the North East Line.
The steering committee resolved the $100 million committed was not enough to upgrade the track to run new modern trains prompting the federal government to contribute an additional $135 million to upgrade the track to at least a class 2 standard.
