Expression of Interest now closed

Thank you to all applicants who have submitted Expressions of Interest to join the West Gate Tunnel Project Community Liasion Groups. We will be in touch with all applicants on the status of their applications in due course. Contact us at 1800 105 105 or email clg@wgta.vic.gov.au for any enquiries.

Our Community Liaison Groups (CLGs) provide a way for community representatives to share local information and tell us how the project is tracking in the eyes of the community, while also hear first-hand from our construction team about what’s happening and what’s coming up on the project.

Community Liaison Group members also support engagement activities with the community.

There are two CLGs - the west and north, which cover concerns relevant to their project area. These two groups meet on alternate months.

On this page you can find key meeting documents and information about the members.
