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 excavators, boring and drilling machines and vacuum trucks), and mobile lighting towers in work areas during night works.

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

There will be no changes to rail operations during these works.
