Wyndham Vale stabling

A new train stabling yard will be built in Melbourne’s west to free up an existing facility and accommodate future growth on the regional rail network.

The new facility will be located on Victorian Government-owned land north of Wyndham Vale station. 

A VLocity train arrives at Tarneit station.

It will help to replace existing stabling at the E-Gate facility, near Footscray, which will make way for an extension of Wurundjeri Way as part of the West Gate Tunnel project.

The new facility is essential to meet inter-peak stabling needs for V/Line trains operating on the regional rail network, while also ensuring there is capacity to house additional carriages in the future.

Site investigations, soil testing and noise monitoring, were completed in early 2018. 

Construction on this project is underway and is expected to be completed by early 2020.

The project has been fully funded in the State Budget 2018/19, as part of $172.9 million set aside for regional rail upgrades.

It is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to improving regional rail infrastructure and services across the state.

The project will be delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project - whose portfolio includes stabling facilities at Mernda and Kananook - on behalf of the Department of Transport.
