Grange Road Alphington Community Update – May 2018
21 May 2018
The Victorian Government has removed two dangerous and congested level crossings along the Hurstbridge line, built a brand new Rosanna Station, and duplicated the single section of track between Heidelberg and Rosanna. This will make communities safer and will get commuters in Melbourne’s north east home sooner.
Thank you to everyone for your patience during our major construction blitz. Trains are now running below Grange Road in the new rail trench, allowing traffic and trains to flow more smoothly.
While the major works were completed during our construction blitz, the focus now shifts to finishing the job around Grange Road. Works will continue to complete walking and cycling paths, landscaping, returning Wingrove Street to two-way traffic and remove the site facilities at Hamilton Street.
