Mentone and Cheltenham sustainability factsheet

Mentone and Cheltenham 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 Mentone and Cheltenham level crossing removal projects.

Renewable energy

We will be installing solar PV systems on Mentone and Cheltenham stations to reduce the operational energy use of the stations.

Reducing waste

All clean material that is excavated as part of the works will either be reused on site or used for land rehabilitation projects in the southeast of Melbourne.

Community inclusion

Across the program of works, we invested more than $9 million in organisations that tackle social problems, provide access to employment and training to disadvantaged groups, and improve communities.


To assist in maintaining ecological value and visual amenity, we are investigating providing about 30 nesting boxes and habitat log hollows around the project area. To date several trees will be transplanted and will be replanted once major construction works are completed.

Maintaining heritage

At Mentone, the current heritage listed station will be incorporated into the final design. The buildings will be relocated and refurbished during the construction before being returned as part of the new heritage deck.
