Works blitz brings upgraded Ballarat line closer
Posted: 20 Dec 2018
A nine-day construction blitz on the Ballarat Line Upgrade saw crews work around the clock on the transformation of the line, which will be complete in late 2019.
Crews completed work on the level crossing at Ferris Road in Cobblebank, with the track now duplicated in this section and the road sealed to provide a smoother ride for motorists.
At Millbrook around 500 metres of track was shifted in preparation for the laying of a second track, which will allow trains to pass each other and boost reliability.
Work will continue throughout 2019 as the Ballarat Line Upgrade ramps up towards its conclusion by the end of the year.
