The project investigated options to upgrade rail infrastructure between South Geelong and Waurn Ponds. This included duplicating the existing rail line, upgrading signalling, stations and bridges and removing level crossings. The project also considered future options to refurbish the existing rail tunnel from Geelong to South Geelong.
The project developed a business case that determined the scope, cost, benefit and deliverability of each option. The business case will help inform future investment decisions from South Geelong to Waurn Ponds.
The cost of the business case was $4 million. The Australian Government contributed $1 million and the Victorian Government $3 million.
The business case commenced on 24 July 2017 and was completed on 10 May 2018. The business case is currently being assessed by Infrastructure Australia.
