Lilyfield Depot taking shape

28 August 2018

Following the energisation of the substation in July, work on the maintenance building has advanced.

The Lilyfield Maintenance Depot will be used for maintenance, repairs and servicing of light rail vehicles and will have facilities for light rail drivers.

The team is focussed on track installation, particularly the APS, or aesthetic power supply track, as work on turnouts also nears completion. The APS is a third rail which eliminates the need for overhead wires and is only powered when the vehicle runs over the rail.

Upcoming works include road and earthworks across the site.
