Have your say on West Footscray Western Turnback

Victorians are being given the opportunity to have their say on plans for the Metro Tunnel’s Western Turnback.

A new passenger platform and additional track, known as the Western Turnback, will be constructed at West Footscray station.

The new infrastructure will allow services to start and finish at West Footscray station and help create more regular and reliable services between Melbourne’s CBD and the western suburbs.

The proposed works to build the Western Turnback will be delivered in two stages, Stage 1 (Rail Works) and Stage 2 (Station Works).

The Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA) has prepared a draft Western Turnback Development Plan – Stage 1 (Rail Works) which outlines initial works in the rail corridor to prepare the site for future construction of the Western Turnback.

You can view and provide feedback on the plan from Monday 26 November 2018 until 5pm Friday 14 December 2018.

We will be popping up at the following locations to provide an opportunity for people to view the plan and chat with the project team:
