Warrnambool and Geelong line upgrades out to market
Posted: 02 Oct 2018
The Warrnambool and Geelong line upgrades took a major step forward this week, with a call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from contractors.
Businesses, including those in the Geelong and south west regions, are encouraged to register their interest in a ‘design and construct’ contract for major aspects of the two projects.
This includes a new crossing loop on the Warrnambool line and a second platform and pedestrian link at Waurn Ponds Station.
The projects will improve reliability for passengers, allow more Geelong services to be extended to Waurn Ponds and enable a fifth daily return service between Warrnambool and Melbourne.
More information about the EOI can be found at tenders.vic.gov.au.
