Early works kick off in Carrum
The $50 million revitalisation of Carrum Village is a step closer this week with early works starting on Station Street, near Carrum Station.
The first borehole was drilled on Monday morning to investigate subsurface soil, rock, and groundwater conditions. Along Station Street you’ll be able to spot a drilling rig and suction truck.
The geotechnical work is an important step which will pave the way for the removal of three level crossings at Mascot Avenue, Station Street and Eel Race Road, as well as the new Carrum Station, extension of McLeod Road to the Nepean Highway and the revitalisation of Carrum Village.
The survey will determine ground conditions and help inform detailed design and construction methods as the project moves from the planning phase to building.
The works along Station Street will continue until late September.
Impacts on the community will be minimal, with a small number of car spaces closed and a single lane closure with traffic management in place on Station Street during business hours.
At the same time as geotechnical work is happening, we’re going out to the community to ask what they would like to see in the $50 million revitalisation of Carrum.
Residents have until Friday 24 August to provide their input via our online engagement hub.
