ABOUT THE GIPPSLAND LINE UPGRADE - AVON RIVER BRIDGE PROJECT

The $95 million Avon River Bridge project is part of the $530 million Gippsland Line Upgrade, which will deliver improvements to passengers along the entire line.

A new bridge will allow trains to travel at up to 90 km/h on the new structure, a significant improvement on the 10 km/h speed limit on the existing bridge as well as increasing passenger comfort by reducing train vibration and noise.

The nearby McAlister Street level crossing will also be upgraded as part of the Avon River Bridge project.

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO PLANNING SCHEME

An amendment to the Wellington Shire Planning Scheme is proposed to facilitate delivery of the Avon River Bridge project.

Rail Projects Victoria is requesting that the Minister for Planning prepare, adopt and approve a Planning Scheme Amendment for the Avon River Bridge project, including exempting the amendment from public exhibition under section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

You can view the draft Planning Scheme Amendment C105 and accompanying material on our website.
