The Altona Loop rail line is set to be partially duplicated in response to feedback received during recent community and stakeholder consultations for the Kororoit Creek Road level crossing removal project.
It is proposed that this level crossing be removed by building a rail bridge over the Kororoit Creek Road. It will now include two tracks, with the duplication extending for approximately 800 metres from the junction with the Werribee line to Kororoit Creek.
The partial duplication will enable trains to pass each other, or to wait off the main Werribee line, improving reliability and reducing the probability of trains bypassing the Loop.
Current plans will be presented at upcoming community drop in sessions.
