Bacchus Marsh Station and Maddingley stabling facilities - Monthly works notification

Major works are continuing on the Ballarat Line Upgrade to deliver more frequent and reliable services for thousands of passengers every day

What we are doing

Monday to Saturday 7am – 6pm throughout October

Bacchus Marsh Station site establishment

A construction site will be established on the southern side of the station in rail land. This will involve installing:

  • Rail safety fencing
  • Temporary site sheds
  • Amenity facilities
  • Staff car parking.

To establish these facilities and for the station works, there will be vegetation and tree removal taking place.

This will allow construction staff to be based on site to build the new southern platform, car park and pedestrian overpass.

Later this month, further communication will be issued regarding a temporary construction zone on the north side of the station.
