There will be heavy equipment at the crossing site and in the rail corridor.

Works will take place during the day and there may be some construction noise and additional lighting.

Health and safety

The health and safety of our workers is our key priority as we continue to deliver the Warrnambool Line Upgrade, as is supporting social distancing measures in line with current health advice.
