We have two Community Liaison Groups for the construction phase of the West Gate Tunnel Project, covering the western and northern areas of the project.

The Community Liaison Groups meet regularly and are an avenue for community members to understand what’s happening during construction, share local information and help support the project’s community engagement activities.

The West group covers suburbs generally within Hobsons Bay, Wyndham and Brimbank local government areas. The North group is for Maribyrnong and Melbourne local government areas.

The West and North Community Liaison Groups’ meetings are held on alternate months. The groups’ introductory meeting was held on 12 June 2018. This followed expressions of interest that were invited in March 2018.

If you have any questions about the Community Liaison Groups, please call 1800 105 105. Enquiries for community representatives can be sent to clg@wgta.vic.gov.au
