ARTC General Manager Victoria Projects Ed Walker said the project is substantially benefiting the local economy.
“A key focus of the North East Rail Line upgrade is to ensure regional centres in North East Victoria directly benefit and we are proud that 38 local suppliers including 20 North East Victorian and 18 businesses from Melbourne are already contracted to work on the multi-million-dollar project,” Mr Walker said.
“More than $50 million has already been injected into the economy for goods ranging from takeaway coffee, rental properties for workers, our partnership with a medical care facility and roughly $20,000 per month invested in fuel from local suppliers.”
Major work to be carried out across the long weekend will include level crossing renewals and major work on the west track between Wodonga and Wangaratta. The level crossing renewals are at: Racecourse Road, Chiltern; McMahons Road, Springhurst and Bennetts Road, Springhurst.
Work will be carried out from midnight Friday 5 June to 6pm Monday 8 June and changed traffic conditions may be in place around work sites.
The North East community has also jumped at the chance to stay up to date with works progress with more 1000 unique users of ARTC’s interactive works map.
