Caulfield to Dandenong Area 3 Community Update – April 2018
01 Apr 2018
Building the new walking and cycling path
Works are completed to remove dangerous and congested level crossings at Corrigan, Heatherton and Chandler roads. Noble Park Station is now operational as works continue on the brand new station.
Works are full steam ahead to create over eight hectares of new community open space at Noble Park. Our project team has poured the first section of the new shared use path (SUP).
Once complete, the path will create 17 kilometres of walking/cycling path, from Caulfield to the EastLink Trail.
We have been working hard to lay the foundations for the two remaining ground level buildings at Noble Park Station. We have also removed the old tracks from Corrigan Road level crossing and installed new lights at the Corrigan/ Lightwood Road intersection.
Over the next month, we will continue construction of the open space and remove all traces of the Corrigan Road level crossing. Road works on Heatherton and Chandler Road level crossings will see the removal of the old tracks and road reconstruction.
