Works notice – Thompsons Road to Cranbourne Station

02 Nov 2020

Works on the Cranbourne Line Upgrade are continuing with strict health and safety protocols in place.

The health and safety of our workers and the community will remain our key priority as we undertake works on the Cranbourne Line Upgrade.

We will continue to follow the directions of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as we safely complete works on this project.

What we’re doing

Throughout November, construction crews will work in the rail corridor between Thompsons Road and Camms Road and in around the Cranbourne Station, to:

  • Build crushed rock haul roads along the rail corridor, between Thompsons Road and Camms Roads
  • Excavate, pour and drill new foundations and install steel structures to support the overhead train line equipment
  • Dig trenches, using non-destructive digging equipment to install underground cables to support the operation of the trains within the rail corridor
  • Remove and reinstate sections of the track to allow for the installation drainage
  • Establish a construction storage area at the corner of Camms Road and Fairfield Street

Upcoming night works

We will work during the day and night in the rail corridor between Thompsons Road and Camms Road and in and around the Cranbourne Station, when the trains are not operating, from 9pm Wednesday 25 November to Thursday 3 December

What to expect

  • Throughout November our crews will work in the rail corridor, between Thompsons Road and Camms Road and in around Cranbourne Station between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays
  • Occasionally we’ll work till 6pm on Saturdays
