Works notice – Berwick multi-deck car park, early works
22 Jul 2021
On behalf of the Australian Government’s Urban Congestion Fund, the Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP) is building a new multi-deck car park at Berwick Station. LXRP will undertake these works while the level crossing removal works are taking place near this site. The new car park will contribute to a final total of more than 1,400 spaces at Berwick Station and provide 16 new accessible spaces.
Early works to build the new Berwick multi-deck car park will get underway soon.
Works are set to begin from late July, and will include:
- temporary closure of some commuter car parks
- installation of temporary fencing
- establish a site compound in the southern car park
- some vegetation removal
- begin removing existing pavement and preparing the area
Works will generally take place Monday to Friday 7am to 6pm, and Saturdays 7am to 1pm, subject to weather conditions. Traffic management, lane closures and reduced speed limits will be in place to help commuters and pedestrians move safely through the area. There will be moderate construction noise, dust and vibrations for short periods from the use of machinery.
Berwick Station southern car park closure
The southern car park at Berwick Station will be closed from Wednesday 11 August 2021 until early 2023, to enable construction of the additional car parking spaces.
To offset the closed car spaces during this time, an additional 150 car spaces will be available at each of the below locations along the Pakenham line for passengers to use:
- Officer Station, 57 Officer South Road, Berwick
- Beaconsfield Station, 285 Soldiers Road, Berwick
As part of closing the Berwick Station southern car park, the Pick Up and Drop Off zone and Taxi Bay will also be closed during this time.
The car park, accessible car spaces and bus interchange on the northern side of Berwick station will remain open during this time. The northern Pick Up and Drop Off zone and taxi bay will remain closed.
Pedestrian access between Clyde Road and Berwick station and between Kangan Drive and Berwick Station will be maintained.
Health and safety
Works are progressing with strict COVIDsafe Plans in place. The health and safety of our workforce and community remains our top priority. For more information and advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au.
