From November to December 2020
Early works are underway on Stage 2 of the Shepparton Line Upgrade to enable VLocity trains to travel to and from Shepparton for the first time and deliver more reliable services. Thanks for your patience while this important work is underway.
What we are doing
Site investigations will take place at each level crossing on the Shepparton Line between Donnybrook and Shepparton. The investigations will include:
- non-destructive digging
- soil sampling
- groundwater testing.
These works will take place between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
What to be aware of
These works are expected to be low impact, however you may notice an increase in noise and dust. There will be machinery, heavy vehicles and workers within the rail corridor, so please be mindful and observe all safety signage in place.
Health and safety
Shepparton Line Upgrade works are progressing under the current Third Step restrictions in Regional Victoria.
You may notice an increase of workers on Victoria’s Big Build projects as restrictions on construction sites start to ease. Large-scale public infrastructure projects are critical and strict COVIDsafe Plans are in place on all project sites across Victoria.
The health and safety of our workforce and the community remains our top priority. Workers on all Victoria’s Big Build sites are required to wear face masks unless they meet any of the criteria for exception – such as a medical condition for Occupational Health and Safety guidelines.
Physical distancing measures are in place as well as increased hygiene practices.
