A new bridge at Eumemmering Creek
10 Dec 2019
Engineers and designers have completed initial plans for a steel truss bridge designed to span over Eumemmerring Creek.
The bridge will support a second train track running over the creek and is part of works to fully duplicate the Cranbourne Line.
Protecting the creek’s ecosystem has been a major focus for engineers working through design options for the Eumemmerring Creek site, located in Dandenong South.
The proposed design means no foundations or pillars need to be dug into the waterway, and no modifications need to be made to the existing single-track bridge at Eumemmerring Creek.
The new, duplicated bridge will be constructed to the west side of the current bridge.
Works at Eumemmerring Creek will start in 2020, as part of the Cranbourne Line Upgrade, which will pave the way for more reliable and frequent trains.
