Deer Park - West Werribee Junction

Laying of rail and sleepers for the new Regional Rail Link tracks

The new Regional Rail Link tracks will extend from Deer Park through the growing western suburbs of Tarneit and Wyndham Vale and connect with the existing Melbourne-Geelong line west of Werribee.

Scope of works

Construction partners

Works in this area have been conducted by Baulderstone Leighton Joint Venture (BLJV).

Rail Systems work between Deer Park and West Werribee Junction 

The Deer Park - West Werribee Junction team has packed up their site to make way for the Rail Systems team to start work.

The Rail Systems team have begun working at Tarneit and Wyndham Vale railway stations to install information and communications technology including passenger information displays, CCTV cameras, ticketing machines and speaker systems.

The team is also working in the rail corridor between Deer Park and West Werribee Junction to install fibre optic and power cables, and the signals that will guide train movements on the new tracks.

Works are expected to take around six months to complete and be completed by the end of 2014.
