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

Works notice – Hallam Road level crossing removal, August works

23 Jul 2021

We’re removing the dangerous and congested level crossing at Hallam Road, Hallam, and building a brand-new Hallam Station.

This is an overview of construction activities, station changes and changed traffic conditions around Hallam Station from Monday 2 August to Sunday 15 August 2021.

Works on the Hallam Road level crossing removal continue with strict health and safety protocols in place. Community and worker health and safety remains our key priority as we follow Department of Health directions to safely complete works.

Update: Station Carpark Changes

The previously advised closures of five car spaces in the northern station carpark from Monday 19 July for up to one month, has been increased and the start date changed.

There will now be rotating closures of six car spaces in the northern station carpark from Tuesday 27 July for up to one month, while crews undertake service investigation works. Short detours with traffic management may be required at times.

Upcoming Construction works and related disruptions

From early August, works will commence on the construction of the above-ground structures for the new rail bridge over Hallam South Road.

Nearby residents and businesses may notice increased deliveries and construction activities in the rail corridor to the east and west of Hallam Station during this time.
