Carrum and Seaford sustainability factsheet

Carrum and Seaford sustainability

We’re doing our bit to help the environment as works progress to remove 18 level crossings and build 12 new stations along the Frankston line.

Check out what we’re up to on the Seaford and Carrum level crossing removal projects.

Water efficiency

We have saved almost 600,000 litres of clean water through installing rainwater tanks and using non-potable water for toilets and construction works.

Reuse of materials

Approximately 15,000 tonnes of rail ballast has been reused in the temporary tracks at Seaford

and Carrum which helped keep Frankston line trains running during major works, minimising disruptions to passengers. This has reduced our reliance on raw materials and the energy required to mine and transport these materials.

Reducing waste

We have diverted over 90% of our construction waste from landfill through reusing material at other sites. We have also diverted over 70% of our office waste through recycling initiatives.

Community inclusion

Across the program of works we invested over $9 million in organisations that tackle social problems, improve communities and give employment and training access to those who are disadvantaged.

Cultural awareness

The Victorian Aboriginal Advisory Council we have developed and established has been recognised as a Victorian first innovation by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia. The Council has helped to drive and shape several outcomes, including the Urban Marker and Yarning Circle at Carrum that celebrate Aboriginal cultural heritage.

The yarning circle and 12m tall urban marker on the southern ramp of the Karrum Karrum bridge.

We worked with Traditional Owners to design the Yarning Circle and Urban Marker at Patterson River in Carrum.
