Construction of the Bellevue railcar facility is well underway!
Firm Construction is thrilled to be working on this multi-functional assembly and maintenance facility, as well as a secondary high-voltage testing building.
The first locally made railcars in almost three decades will be assembled and maintained at this facility, returning to the Midland area for the first time since 1994 when the Midland Railway Workshops were closed by the then Liberal Government. Around 100 jobs have been created during construction and more jobs will be created once railcar production and maintenance begins.
The facilities will include a 180m-long building with a railcar assembly area, offices, workshops and storage areas, two overhead cranes able to lift 25 tonne each, and a heavy maintenance railroad with a crane capable of lifting 10 tonne.
