About the Geelong and Warrnambool Line Upgrades

The Geelong and Warrnambool lines are being upgraded as part of the $1.75 billion Regional Rail Revival program.

The Geelong Line Upgrade will lead to improved train services, with a second platform, new track and pedestrian overpass at Waurn Ponds station. These works will create enough space for trains to pass, allowing more Geelong services to be extended to and from Waurn Ponds and helping to improve service reliability.

The Warrnambool Line Upgrade will deliver more frequent and reliable train services, helping pave the way for VLocity trains to run to Warrnambool for the first time. The project includes building a new crossing loop, signalling upgrades between Waurn Ponds and Warrnambool, level crossing upgrades and new train stabling facilities.


PROPOSED PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT

An draft amendment to the Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Corangamite, Moyne and Warrnambool planning schemes is proposed to enable the construction of the Geelong and Warrnambool line upgrades.

Rail Projects Victoria intends to request that the Minister for Planning consider preparing, approving and adopting a planning scheme amendment to facilitate the Geelong and Warrnambool line upgrades under section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

You can view the draft Planning Scheme Amendment GC121 and accompanying material on the Regional Rail Revival website.
