Initial works to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Balcombe Road, Mentone are underway, with major works to begin in mid 2019.
At Mentone, the rail line will be lowered into a rail trench, with the roads to be rebuilt at their current level.
This will coincide with the removal of the crossings at nearby Park and Charman roads in Cheltenham. All three will be gone for good by late 2020.
A new Mentone Station will be built as part of the project, with the existing heritage-listed station used in the final design as part of a new ‘heritage bridge’ over the rail line. The new station location will integrate with the Mentone Renaissance project.
The project will include more than three kilometres of walking and cycling paths connecting the Mentone and Cheltenham station precincts. It will also include landscaping, and improved lighting, accessibility and car parking.
Mentone Station – Car park changes
Up to 15 car spaces in the Mentone Station car park will close at times until July 2019.
