As part of the Djilang Alliance we're designing and constructing the South Geelong to Waurn Ponds Rail Duplication project – which will provide more frequent and reliable services and better stations for passengers on Victoria’s busiest regional rail line. Our alliance includes Downer, Arup and WSP.

The duplication includes elevated rail bridges for two level crossing removals, around eight kilometres of track duplication and signalling upgrades. The project also includes new station buildings at Marshall and South Geelong with landscaped forecourts, second platforms and accessible pedestrian overpasses.

Early works on the project has begun, with major construction expected to start the second half of 2022 and completion targeted for late 2024.
