Waurn Ponds Stabling Facility
In 2017, Public Transport Victoria transferred the design and development of the proposed Waurn Ponds train maintenance and stabling facility to Rail Projects Victoria.
The construction of a new Waurn Ponds train maintenance and stabling facility is required to support much needed additional services on the Geelong line.
Proposed Planning Scheme Amendment GC104 - Waurn Ponds Train Maintenance and Stabling Facility
Rail Projects Victoria has lodged a request for a Planning Scheme Amendment (GC104) with the Minister for Planning to facilitate the project.
If the facility is approved, it will be delivered as part of the Geelong and Warrnambool line upgrades.
The request has been referred to the Government Land Standing Advisory Committee for independent review. This provides a transparent and independent process for people to have their say on the project.
Information on the Government Land Standing Advisory Committee is available at: https://engage.vic.gov.au/glsac/t23
Information about the project, including the planning scheme amendment and supporting documents are on public exhibition until 5pm Monday 16 September 2019. The documents can be found at: https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/glps
