West Gate Tunnel Project

The West Gate Tunnel Project will deliver an alternative to the West Gate Bridge and relieve congestion to Melbourne’s western suburbs.

As a result of the West Gate Tunnel Project (WGTP), various sites have been identified that will require the relocation of CitiPower assets to enable the construction.

Our work on the WGTP includes;

  • Installation, jointing and termination of new 66kV & 22kV underground cable
  • Removal of existing 66kV & 22kV overhead powerlines
  • Construction of new 66kV & 22kV overhead powerlines

To date, our crews have successfully undergrounded 2 kilometres of 66kV overhead line and energised three feeder exits from Brooklyn Terminal Station connecting the Laverton and Bacchus Marsh substations.

Works on Stage 2 are now in full swing on the stretch of freeway between Brooklyn Terminal Station and the M80 interchange.

Our involvement in the project is expected to finish in December 2020.
