Early engineering investigations to start

Over the next few months starting in March 2021, our construction contractor will be completing engineering-related investigation activities at various locations along the North East rail line. 

14/08/18 ARTC drilling site on a property owned by Teen Challenge, near Toowomba. Drill hole number is 320-01-BH2101 - Sam Coombes, Senior Geotechnical Engineer, Golders and Associates , Ed Smith, Geotechnical Engineer, Golders and Associates, Peter Thomas Chief Geologist ARTC,

*Update* Green Street, Wangaratta closed 6-16 April

Green Street will be closed from Roy Street West to Tone Road intersections from Tuesday, 6 April to Friday 16 April (except 8 April and from 12 to 15 April), to complete these engineering-related investigation activities.

Signage and traffic controllers will assist drivers with detours in place along Roy St West, Tone Road, Norton Street and Sisely Avenue. Signage will indicate pedestrian detours via the footbridge.

All works are scheduled from 7am to 6pm each weekday and from 8am to 1pm on Saturday. If further works are required outside of these hours, we will notify you in advance.

Equipment used will include drilling rigs, vacuum trucks, small excavators, tipper trucks, survey equipment, light vehicles and lighting towers. 

Data from these investigations will help to refine our designs and identify opportunities to minimise local construction impacts.

Over the next few months starting in March 2021, our construction contractor will be completing engineering-related investigation activities at various locations along the North East rail line.

Data from these investigations will help to refine our designs and identify opportunities to minimise local construction impacts.

Work locations and times 

Investigations will occur along the rail corridor and adjacent areas at Barnawartha North, Wangaratta, Glenrowan, Seymour, and Tallarook between the standard working hours of 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 1pm Saturdays.

What might I expect to see?

Geotechnical investigations, utilities investigations, condition inspections of existing infrastructure (e.g. bridges), topographical surveys and train signaling infrastructure surveys. 

Some of the equipment used during this period include drones, cameras, drilling rigs, vacuum trucks, small excavators, tipper trucks, survey equipment and light vehicles.  

How impacts will be managed

Traffic management will be on-site, where required, and property access will be maintained. There will be no disruption to electricity and water supply or phone services. The investigation activities will generate some noise and the team will minimise impacts wherever possible.

We are actively implementing social distancing procedures and adhering to other restrictions, in line with Victorian guidelines.     

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we carry out these investigation works.
