Alliance appointed to upgrade Australia’s Geelong Line

The Djilang Alliance will deliver the next step in the upgrade of the Geelong Line in Australia as part of Victoria’s South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Duplication project.

The alliance brings together construction and design experts McConnell Dowell, Downer, Arup and WSP, who have formed the team to help deliver more frequent and reliable services and better stations for passengers on Victoria’s busiest regional rail line.

The South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Duplication will include around 8 kilometres of track duplication and elevated rail bridges to replace level crossings at Fyans Street and the Surf Coast Highway, as well as signalling upgrades.

South Geelong and Marshall stations will both be upgraded and will feature new station buildings, landscaped forecourts, second platforms and accessible pedestrian overpasses.

Early works are progressing, including the relocation of a Barwon Water pipeline, with major construction to follow later this year and a target completion date of late 2024.

The project is the next step in the staged upgrades to the Geelong Line, following completion of the Waurn Ponds Station upgrade in May, which enabled 20 peak and shoulder peak services to be extended to and from Waurn Ponds Station each week.
