V/Line’s regional network will now benefit from greater flexibility thanks to the opening of the Wyndham Vale stabling yard on the Geelong line.
The new storage facility for trains is now operational following a 10-day schedule of final testing and commissioning works, which included extensive driver training to help drivers familiarise themselves with the new infrastructure.
Built just north of Wyndham Vale Station, the stabling yard will initially house up to six V/Locity trains at any one time, with buildings constructed for staff amenities, security and utilities.
With future network improvements in the pipeline, the facility has also been designed to cater for an expansion if required.
Several sustainable initiatives were also implemented during construction, including the use of recycled plastic sleepers, the use of a recycled plastic asphalt mix and the use of recycled glass sand.
The stabling yard will now be handed over to V/Line and the Department of Transport for operation.
