Construction on the removal of eight more level crossings on the Frankston line will begin in 2018.
The eight level crossings to be removed include:
- Station Street / Bondi Road, Bonbeach
- Station Street, Carrum
- Charman Road, Cheltenham
- Edithvale Road, Edithvale
- Sky Road / Overton Road, Frankston
- Balcombe Road, Mentone
- Eel Race Road, Seaford
- Seaford Road, Seaford.
Geotechnical investigations are already underway to help us better understand the ground conditions in the area. We will also be talking to the community shortly about these level crossing removals, including hosting community information sessions and pop information stands at stations.
Community consultation will continue through 2016, in preparation for contract award in 2017 and start of construction in 2018.
