Works notice – Preston power pole installation

23 Nov 2020

The Victorian Government is removing four dangerous and congested level crossings at Oakover Road, Bell Street, Cramer Street and Murray Road, and building new Bell and Preston stations. The level crossings will be removed by raising the rail line over the roads, improving safety and accessibility and delivering new community open spaces.

On Thursday 10 December between 7am and 6pm Jemena will be installing power poles along Edith Street and replacing a pole on the corner of Edith and Bruce streets.
