Find more information in our Privacy collection statement.

When will I get a response?

We will provide you with a final response to your feedback as soon as reasonably possible.

If we need a longer time-frame than anticipated, we will explain this to you.

Urgent responses

For emergencies, call 000 immediately.

Otherwise, if your complaint relates to:

  • immediate safety issues
  • construction impacts
  • accessibility
  • property damage

we will prioritise the matter, and deal with it as quickly as possible.

If you're not satisfied

If you’re not satisfied with our response, you can escalate your feedback.

In the first instance, we prefer that you raise your complaint directly with us in the Victorian Infrastructure Delivery Authority (VIDA). However if you remain dissatisfied with our response, you have options to escalate both internally and externally. If you prefer to escalate it externally, you are not required to request VIDA to review it again.

Internal escalation

Within VIDA, the manager of the relevant project complaint management team will review your complaint further.

We’ll discuss your complaint with you and try to reach an agreement that is satisfactory to both parties.

You can request to have your feedback reviewed via any of these modes:
