Inland Rail project update

One of the impediments to allow double stacked trains to pass safely through Wangaratta, the Cusack Street footbridge, has been removed by our Inland Rail team.

The pedestrian bridge, which came down on Monday 3 July, will be replaced with a new pedestrian underpass under the rail line. Elements of the Cusack Street footbridge’s heritage and design will be incorporated into the new underpass.

Ed Walker, ARTC General Manager Victoria and South Australia Projects said...

“The removal of the Cusack Street footbridge is the first major move in the Wangaratta rail precinct project.

"We are working hard with our construction partner, McConnell Dowell to minimise the impact of works on the community.”
