The Level Crossing Removal Project Caulfield to Dandenong is removing nine level crossings and rebuilding five stations. The Cranbourne-Pakenham train line is Melbourne's busiest and is crossed by some of our most congested roads, with boom gates down for up to 82 minutes during the morning peak.

Overview

The Heatherton Road level crossing removal is part of the Caulfield to Dandenong project, which involves removing nine level crossings, rebuilding five new stations at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park.

Design

A project of the size and complexity of the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project involves a considerable amount of design work to arrive at the finished product. The project is split into 160 individual design packages. We prioritise these packages and progressively pass them onto the construction team when complete. Staging the design in this way is typical of a major infrastructure project and allows us to start and finish sooner. Check out our Project Design fact sheet for more information.

Construction impacts

Station precinct changes

Work has started to remove the Heatherton Road level crossing and rebuild the Noble Park Station. This has involved the following changes to the station precinct which came into effect from mid-October 2016:

  • Changes to the way you enter and exit Platform 2.
  • Temporary waiting room with CCTV and customer help point and safety zone on the platform*
  • Relocation of myki machines and myki readers to the temporary station entrance.
  • Pedestrian access changes at the underpass which will remain Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.
  • Width of Platform will be reduced but will remain Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.

* Protective Services Officers will continue to patrol the station daily from 6:00pm until the last service.

While accessibility will be maintained, customers with special needs are encouraged to call the Community Information Line on 1800 762 667 to discuss specific requirements.

Car park closure

Noble Park Station Mons Parade car park is now closed until mid-2018 so we can start works to remove level crossings, construct elevated tracks and rebuild the station.

To ensure there is no loss of parking for rail customers during construction*, the car park at Sandown Park has been extended to provide approximately 166 additional car spaces.

During construction, station car park users are encouraged to plan their travel and consider alternative transport to nearby stations and offset car park locations.

Pedestrian access changes

Heatherton Road pedestrian level crossing (south side) will be temporarily closed from early December until Friday 23 December 2016. Please detour via the pedestrian crossing on the northern side of Heatherton Road and follow traffic controls.

For your safety, please observe any signage and instructions put in place during these works.

We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we carry out these important works.
