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.

The project is expected to start later this year and be completed by early 2020.

Site investigations, soil testing and noise monitoring, were completed earlier this year.

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 Authority on behalf of Transport for Victoria.

LXRA is well-placed to undertake the works - its project portfolio includes stabling facilities at Mernda and Kananook.
