Metro Trains level crossing project to use recycled glass soon

By on 06 March 2019

More than 900 tonnes of recycled glass sand will be used as bedding and material for the combined service route on the Kororoit Creek Road level crossing removal project of Metro Trains Melbourne.

Taking more than 22,000 cars to Laverton, Williams, Altona and beyond, Kororoit Creek Road is part of the VicRoads Principal Freight Network thoroughfare in Victoria’s west.

Along with the Western Program Alliance, the level crossing removal project comprising of McConnell Dowell, Arup, Mott McDonald and Metro Trains Melbourne undertook a grade separation at Kororoit Creek Road, placing rail over the road at Williamstown North.

It is projected that the upcoming launch of the new state-of-the-art glass recycling plant will enable recycling of the most problematic glass waste streams into clean construction sand, putting an end to landfill and stockpiling of glass in Victoria.
