We're removing 10 more level crossings by 2025, bringing the total to 85 level crossings gone for good.

Works notice – Henry/Bridge Road and Cardinia Road September night works and intersection upgrade

27 Aug 2021

The Victorian Government is removing 17 dangerous level crossings, including Cardinia Road as part of a $15 billion investment to upgrade the Pakenham line that will improve safety, reduce congestion and allow more trains to run more often.

Upcoming night works

To complete works safely at the intersection of Cardinia Road and Henry/Bridge Road, there will be additional night works in September.

Our normal work hours are Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm, and Saturdays between 7am and 3.30pm.

In addition to our standard working hours, we will work overnight from:

  • From 7pm to 7am Monday 30 August to Friday 1 October (excluding weekends).

The works overnight will include:

  • removal of asphalt to install conduits and pits
  • relocation of traffic signals and light poles
  • asphalting
  • kerb, footpath and traffic islands installation
  • reinstatement of the area.

Disruptions

To safely complete these works, there will be directional closures on Henry Road and Cardinia Road overnight, please refer to signage in the area.

Pedestrian impacts

There will be pedestrian path changes and detours in place throughout construction. Signage will be in place to direct you safely around the area.

What to expect next

Some activity and construction related noise and vibration may be noticeable.

We will make every effort to mitigate the impact of our overnight construction activities and, where possible, schedule noisy/disruptive works during the day or earlier in the evening.

If you would like to talk to a member of the project team about these works, please contact us on the details below.
