Overview

The Ison Road Rail Overpass project includes construction of a road overpass bridge across the Melbourne-Geelong Railway line.

The project scope includes opportunities for active transport, including a walking and cycling path as well as dedicated on road bike lanes in both directions.

The project aims to:

  • provide a vital link between the developing residential areas of Wyndham West and Melbourne and Geelong via the Princes Freeway
  • give Wyndham West residents access to surrounding areas and broader transport networks
  • support urban growth and housing development in this high-growth area
  • reduce traffic in central Werribee, thereby reducing congestion and improving journey reliability to Princes Freeway and the Werribee Town Centre
  • improve the amenity and safety of local streets and Werribee Town Centre.

How to participate

We’d like you to complete the survey below. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

Next steps

To begin construction on the Ison Road Rail Overpass, we are required to seek appropriate planning approvals under the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

As part of the MRPV Planning Provision we are seeking input from the community and other interested parties regarding the project.

While we will be consulting with you over the next few years as we develop and deliver this project, this is your only chance to tell us your thoughts about the proposed Planning Provision for the project before we combine the feedback in a report and submit it to the Minister for Planning to make a decision.

All feedback must be received by 1 December 2021.
