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

Works notice – Drainage upgrades at Wells Road, Seaford

18 Jan 2022

The Victorian Government is removing 20 dangerous level crossings and building 13 new stations as part of a $4 billion upgrade of the Frankston Line that will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run more often.

As part of these works, the Kananook Train Storage Facility opened in May 2020 to provide essential overnight train storage and the daily services needed to keep trains running reliably.

We are continuing with works in early 2022, including upgrading drainage in the immediate area.

Works taking place

From 31 January to 21 February 2022 works to relocate drainage in and near the stabling facility will take place along sections of Wells Road and Miles Grove. This will require the temporary closure of Wells Road to through traffic. Access will be maintained to local homes and businesses, including for customers of local traders.

A detour will be in place on Wells Road from Seaford Road to Klauer Street.

Works will take place from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and from 7am to 1pm Saturdays. If any works are required outside these times, we will let you know.

What to expect

  • Detours in place from 31 January to 21 February 2022
  • Construction workers, vehicles and equipment on site
  • Noise from machinery, including excavators and saw cutters
  • Temporary impacts to some street parking
  • Signage to assist with detour routes
  • Traffic management will be in place to help you move safely through the area
