Summer travel changes in Carrum

27 Dec 2019

Works are heating up in Carrum this summer as we get ready to remove three level crossings as well as opening the new Carrum Station and direct connection of McLeod Road to Nepean Highway in February 2020.

To allow works to progress there will be changes to the way you travel around the area in January and February as we continue with important works to improve the local road network.

The dangerous level crossings at Eel Race Road and Mascot Avenue, Bonbeach will close permanently on Sunday 2 February. This will enable works that need to take place during the Frankston line closure.

The new direct connection of McLeod Road to the Nepean Highway will open on Monday 10 February, providing boom gate-free access across the Frankston line in Carrum. Once the works are complete, traffic flow through the area will improve and travel times will be reduced.

Works on Nepean Highway in Carrum

Building big this summer

There are disruptions across the public transport and road networks this summer, as construction efforts ramp up on the Metro Tunnel, West Gate Tunnel, level crossing removals and upgrades to the roads in the west.

Find out if you’re affected by visiting Victoria’s Big Build.

Check out what’s happening in Carrum below.

Road

Nepean Highway

From Monday 6 January to Sunday 19 January Nepean Highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

To maintain traffic flow there will be no right turns when heading south and no parking between Stephens Street and Progress Avenue.

The U-turn bay at Eel Race Road will enable drivers to access properties and the beach.

For about two weeks from late February 2020 we will be upgrading footpaths and continuing road surfacing works. During this time Nepean highway will be reduced to two lanes.

Station Street

From late January to Monday 17 February traffic on Station Street between Mascot Avenue and Walkers Road will be reduced to one way due to an increase in heavy vehicles accessing the site.

Between Mascot Avenue and McLeod Road traffic can only travel in a southern direction.

Between Walkers Road and McLeod Road traffic can only travel in a north direction.

Traffic management and detours in place to help you move safely through the area.

Level crossing closures

The dangerous level crossings at Eel Race Road and Mascot Avenue, Bonbeach will close permanently on Sunday 2 February. This will enable works that need to take place during the Frankston line closure.

The new direct connection of McLeod Road to the Nepean Highway will open on Monday 10 February, providing boom gate-free access across the Frankston line in Carrum. Once the works are complete, traffic flow through the area will improve and travel times will be reduced.

Traffic management and detours will be in place to help you move safely through the area.

Detours via Bondi, Bonbeach, Edithvale and Seaford roads until the new McLeod Road connection opens.

Pedestrian and cyclist

From Sunday 2 February 2020 the temporary pedestrian crossing across the rail line near Stephens Street will be permanently closed so we can connect power and signalling for the new Carrum Station.

A shuttle bus will provide pedestrians with safe access across the Frankston line until new pedestrian connections open at McLeod Road.

Access is available along the foreshore via the ramps at Karrum Karrum Bridge.

For safe beach access, we recommend locals use Johnson Avenue due to heavy vehicle activity on Old Post Office Lane.

Rail

Buses replace trains on the Frankston line between Moorabbin, Frankston and Stony Point from 1am Sunday 2 February to last train Sunday 16 February 2020.

On Monday 17 February 2020, Carrum locals will be able to catch the train from the brand new Carrum Station.
