West Footscray Western Turnback Development Plan – Stage 1 (Rail Works)

The Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA) will build a new passenger platform and additional track at West Footscray station. This new infrastructure, known as the Western Turnback, will enable trains to start and finish services at West Footscray station and help create more regular and reliable services between Melbourne’s CBD and the western suburbs.

Before works begin, a range of initial works are required within the rail corridor to prepare the site for future construction.

A draft Western Turnback Development Plan – Stage 1 (Rail Works) (PDF, 6.5 MB) has been prepared including information about these works.
