Waurn Ponds Station Track Duplication

Mount Duneed, VIC
Downer Group

As part of Victoria’s Big build, The Waurn Ponds Station was upgraded to increase capacity along the Warrnambool Train Line.

Grampians was contracted by Downer Group to complete the Civil component of the track duplication and track reconstruction at Waurn Ponds Station.

Grampians scope of works included the following:

  • Topsoil strip 
  • Excavation to subgrade
  • Subgrade retrification 
  • Formation construction (structural fill and capping)
  • Track drainage (both RCP’s and SSDs up to 600dia)
  • Ballast placement 
  • Resurfacing of asphalt, pavement widening, pedestrian footpaths along Ghazeepore Road. 

Due to the location of the project, works had to be undertaken during 24-hour occupations over a number of days. This project was also in close proximity to a waterway which the team had to dewater and divert Armstrong Creek while works were underway to ensure that works could be carried out in the creek bed. This involved relocating a native fish species, as well as relocating the Telstra service within the creek bed.
