Works notice – Argyle Avenue level crossing closure

21 Oct 2020

The Victorian Government is removing 18 dangerous level crossings and building 12 new stations as part of a $3 billion upgrade on the Frankston line that will improve safety, reduce congestion and run more trains, more often.

Works are continuing the Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach level crossing removal project with strict health and safety protocols in place.

The health and safety of our workers and the community will remain our key priority as we undertake works on the Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach level crossing removal project.

We will continue to follow the directions of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as we safely complete works on this project.

Works taking place

To prepare for level crossing removal works in Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach, underground power and signalling for the Frankston line is being upgraded to improve the reliability of train services.

From 7am Monday 16 November to 9am Friday 20 November 2020 the Argyle Avenue level crossing in Chelsea will be closed to vehicles to enable these works. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
