We are currently seeking members for our Community Liaison Groups (CLGs), covering the western and northern areas of the project.

As works on the project expands, we are wanting to work with more members of the community.

Our CLGs are meeting regularly throughout the construction phase of the West Gate Tunnel.

CLGs provide an avenue for community members to understand what’s happening during construction, share local information and help support the project’s community engagement activities.

We have two groups, the West group which covers suburbs generally in Hobsons Bay and Wyndham council areas and, the North group, which covers the Maribyrnong and Melbourne local government areas. The West and North groups meet on alternate months.

Below you will find information on current members, as well as documents from previous meetings. Please read the Terms of Reference (PDF 238 KBDOCX 411 KB).

If you are interested in becoming a member please download and complete this form and email to clg@wgta.vic.gov.au

Expressions of Interest close on Friday 7 June 2019.

If you have any questions about our Community Liaison Groups please call 1800 105 105 or email clg@wgta.vic.gov.au

Any personal information you provide will be used in line with our privacy policy.
