The Wyndham Vale stabling yard has now opened.
The yard, located north of Wyndham Vale station, will provide more flexibility for trains on the Geelong line serving the Victorian regional network.
A day 10 works program of testing and commissioning was carried out in the leadup to the opening, which involved driver training for familiarisation with the new infrastructure.
The stabling yard can hold six V/Locity trains at a time and also includes staff amenities, security, and utilities.
With further works being carried out to expand the capacity of regional rail in Victoria, particularly along the Melbourne-Geelong corridor, there is room for the yard to expand when needed.
The construction of the site involved the use of sustainable materials. Recycled plastic sleepers, recycled plastic asphalt and recycled glass sand were all used to build the facility.
