Work being done

Inland Rail will work round-the-clock between 12am Thursday morning 7 March and 6pm Wednesday 13 March constructing Inland Rail in Wangaratta.

Works will include lowering the rail track at Green Street and constructing the new western track at the Wangaratta Railway Station.

This involves cutting and removing the existing track, ground excavation and rebuilding the new track in the required location.

About 900 metres of new rail will be installed.

Other works include installation of drainage, construction of the new western platform and filling in the eastern track, locally known as the station ‘Dive’.

Piling to strengthen the western abutment of the Green Street bridge will also occur.

Most of the works will be within or around the Green Street bridge and station precinct.

Trucks moving in and out of the work sites and Frank Hayes Drive, Wangaratta may cause some delays to traffic and impact road users.

Access to the station building will be maintained.

There will be changes to passenger train services during these works. For more information visit
