Site investigations are taking place to help inform planning and design for the South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Duplication.
South Geelong to Waurn Ponds
The South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Duplication is part of the staged upgrade of the Geelong Line and critical in delivering more frequent and reliable services for South Geelong, Marshall and Waurn Ponds passengers.
The project includes track duplication between South Geelong and Waurn Ponds stations and the removal of the Fyans Street and Surf Coast Highway level crossings. It also includes upgrades to South Geelong and Marshall stations to provide better facilities for passengers in these growing communities.
What we are doing
Site investigations will take place along the rail corridor between South Geelong and Waurn Ponds stations. We will survey sites to identify any underground electricity, power, water, gas or communication lines that may be located in this area.
The investigations will take place Monday to Friday from 7am to 5pm.
What to be aware of
These works are expected to be low impact and non-invasive. Road access will be maintained at all times.
Health and safety
The health and safety of our workers and the community is our key priority and we have measures in place to protect the safety of our construction workforce, including temperature screening, additional protective equipment including masks, daily health screening of workers, enhanced cleaning, staggered shifts and break times, and physical distancing.
Our workforce numbers across Victoria’s Big Build have already been significantly reduced to support directions from the Chief Health Officer, and we are continuing to manage the number of staff and visitors attending our worksites.
Keeping you informed
