What to expect if you live alongside the rail corridor

Residents along the rail corridor may experience an increase in dust and noise associated with the use of machinery and equipment (including drill rig, excavator, vacuum truck, concrete truck, crane and construction vehicles).

To minimise impacts, environmental controls will manage noise and dust, and all workers will be briefed on key community and environmental considerations.

What to expect if you’re a rail customer

To undertake this work safely, some track closures will be necessary. Plan your journey in advance by visiting, calling 13 12 30 or downloading the MyTransLink app.
