Contractors in the Geelong region are being encouraged to bid for lucrative work as part of upgrades to the Geelong and Warrnambool rail lines.
The multi-million-dollar projects will include an expansion of Waurn Ponds station, and improvements to the Warrnambool line to allow for the introduction of VLocity trains to the tourist hotspot on Victoria's south west coast.
Level crossings along the route will also be upgraded.
Work on the Geelong line will include a second platform at Waurn Ponds as well as a new passing track that will clear the way for the extension of more Geelong services.
Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said he strongly encouraged local businesses to register their interest in carrying out the work.
"The design and construction work for the upgrades will provide a great benefit for local contractors and suppliers to get involved, bringing wider benefits for Geelong and south west Victoria," Mr McCormack said.
The upgrades are funded jointly by the state and federal governments.
Work on the Geelong line is scheduled to be completed by 2021.
