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

Works notice – Beresford, Montrose and Wilson Street intersection

17 Jan 2022

We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossings at Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert by lowering the rail line beneath the road in an open trench and building a new premium station with better facilities and more services.

Works on the Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert level crossing removal are being carried out with COVIDSafe Plans in place to help protect workers and the community.

For more information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the Coronavirus website.

Works to relocate the sewer will commence on Wednesday 19 January. To safely undertake these works, we need to close the intersection of Beresford, Montrose and Wilson streets for approximately nine months.

Works taking place

A construction site will be established at the intersection of Beresford, Montrose and Wilson streets to allow the crews to complete the work safely.

Crews will excavate a deep shaft that will serve as a retrieval point for the sewer. A small tunnel boring machine will then tunnel from Lorne Parade Reserve under the rail corridor into the shaft.

Traffic management will be in place and vehicles will be detoured safely around the area. Some on-street car parking will be temporarily closed on Wilson Street to enable these works to take place (see map overleaf).

There will be periods where rubbish bin collection in adjoining streets will be impacted by these works. For the first phase of works, you should put your bins out as normal and we will provide further advice ahead of any changes to bin collection.
