Disruptions

Caulfield to Dandenong area 3 Community Update – January 2018

16 Jan 2018

Major works are underway to remove dangerous level crossings at Corrigan, Heatherton and Chandler roads and build a brand-new station in Noble Park.

Works ramping up

We hit a major milestone in Noble Park recently with the installation of the new station canopy. A total of 59 pieces were placed individually to provide a unique covering over the station platform.

We have also installed a massive 2,400 linear metres of plinth track. A rail plinth is a concrete block that will secure the rail line. The remaining 400 linear metres of plinth track, which will run through Noble Park Station, will be installed in early 2018.

Brand-new Noble Park Station

Construction of the new Noble Park Station is almost complete. We have installed the first walkways along the elevated structure and have made significant progress constructing the ground level station building.

Over the next month, you will notice a lot of activity in the area as we complete the new station, lay the final pieces of rail track, and begin overhead wiring on the elevated structure.

Following this work we will remove the boom gates for good at Heatherton, Corrigan and Chandler roads and open the new Noble Park station.

Disruptions

We’re working hard to minimise disruptions for residents, commuters and local businesses wherever possible. However, there will be some upcoming disruptions including the following:

Road

Heatherton Road, Noble Park, will close at the level crossing from 10:00pm to 7:00am on the following nights:

  • Friday 12 January 2018

  • Sunday 14 January 2018.

Please follow detours in place via Kelvinside Road, Corrigan Road, Chandler Road and Douglas Street. Chandler Road, Noble Park, will close at the level crossing from 10:00pm to 6:00am on the following nights:

Please follow detours in place via Heatherton Road, Douglas Street and Yarraman Road.

Until February 2018, Mons Parade will close intermittently on selected days and nights between Heatherton Road and Ian Street. This closure will enable further works on the new Noble Park station. On-street car parking on Ian Street may be affected at times. Traffic will detour via Ian Street.
