Bell To Preston Level Crossing

Project completion Feb 2023
Location Preston, VIC
Client John Holland (NWPA)
Sectors Transport, Rail infrastructure

Wamarra transformed Bell and Preston train stations with stunning landscaping as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.

For our workforce, this project offered over 14,500 hours of Aboriginal participation and was completed 24 hours ahead of schedule.

Contracted by John Holland, Wamarra’s scope of work included:

  • 11,000m2 of concrete – exposed aggregate and E-Mesh SUP

  • Retaining wall construction, road works, furniture installation with seats, bins and play equipment (Urban Profile)

  • Soil and mulch installation and planting.

Starting with Murray Rd, then Cramer St before finishing with Bell St, the entire open space has been connected by walking and cycling paths. The landscaping included native grasses, flowering varieties and thousands of trees, revitalising the entire area.

The amazing team, alongside John Holland, have created an inviting and eco-friendly space for commuters and the community to enjoy.

The incredible work on this project resulted in the team taking out the inaugural Homes Victoria Excellence in Social Procurement Award at the 2023 Master Builders Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards.
