Werribee Street - consultation report
02 Sep 2019
The Werribee Street, Werribee level crossing is an important gateway between Werribee and Wyndham Vale and is used by 20,000 vehicles each day. It is surrounded by homes, businesses and parklands. Wyndham City Council is completing major upgrade works to Wyndham Park which sits next to the train line. Planning and technical work has identified two feasible designs for removing this level crossing with a rail over road the preferred design.
In the preferred rail bridge over Werribee Street design, we would elevate the three train tracks in a structure that would begin rising after the Werribee River. The rail bridge structure would be around one kilometre long and have a height of about six metres when it crosses Werribee Street. This structure would allow for both freight and regional trains.
The project is currently in the design development phase. The final design will be confirmed in late 2019. Construction will begin in 2020 and the project will be completed by the end of 2022.
Between Thursday 27 June and Friday 26 July 2019, Werribee and Hoppers Crossing locals gave feedback on the design look and feel and use of public space.
The aim of the consultation was to advise the community of the preferred design and another feasible design for the Werribee Street level crossing removal in Werribee, while allowing for feedback on the designs' look and feel and use of public space.
This report outlines the key themes raised in the feedback from the community, businesses and stakeholders during this consultation period.
