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 is packing up their site during the middle of 2014 and making way for the Rail Systems team to start work.

The Rail Systems team will begin working at Tarneit and Wyndham Vale 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. A signalling equipment room and train radio pole have also be installed in the rail corridor at Wyndham Vale.

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