Glenroy Road re-opens
02 Mar 2021
Glenroy Road has re-opened on Monday morning, following seven weeks of intensive work as part of the Glenroy Level Crossing Removal Project.
Since Thursday 7 January, crews have worked to demolish parts of the old Glenroy Station, install temporary station buildings and build a temporary pedestrian overpass across the rail line to keep passengers moving.
Glenroy Road has moved closer towards becoming a ‘bridge’, with 253 cubic metres of concrete poured recently to make the bridge deck. Piling rigs on site have drilled 68 piles to build foundations for the rail trench underneath Glenroy Road.
Crews are now getting ready to excavate around 88,000 cubic metres of rock and clay for the new rail trench.
From Tuesday 6 April to Friday 16 April, buses will replace trains on the Craigieburn, Seymour and Shepparton lines, as we carry out excavation work in the rail corridor, north and south of the Hartington Street car park.
More excavation and foundation works will continue until October.
The level crossing is being removed by lowering the rail line under Glenroy Road. When it’s finished in late 2022, the rail trench at Glenroy will be approximately 1.2 kilometres long and 8 metres deep at its deepest point.
Get involved in the Glenroy project
The Glenroy Road project team is also calling for nominations for members of the community to join our Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG).
The group will bring together local residents, business owners and others with a strong connection to Glenroy and the local area. Meetings will be held every second month via Zoom.
The SLG will focus on informing the community on progress of the Glenroy Road Level Crossing Removal Project, understanding the issues that matter to locals, and providing local perspectives and insights about the community for the project team.
Visit Engage Victoria to register your interest before 5pm Friday 12 March.
