The first major milestone to improve connections in Carrum is complete with the opening of Karrum Karrum Bridge – linking the Bonbeach and Carrum communities and enabling the future closure of the Mascot Avenue, Bonbeach level crossing.
Major works will start in early 2019 to remove the dangerous and congested level crossings in Carrum, build a new Carrum Station, and create a more direct road network for locals with a new boom-gate free connection between McLeod Road and the Nepean Highway and through to the beach.
The level crossing removals and $50 million revitalisation will create over 1.2 hectares of new community space, equivalent to the size of AAMI Park.
Four new areas will be created including a foreshore park, a village green between Station Street and the Nepean Highway, a town square at the new Carrum Station main entrance and a station garden at the second entrance.
The closure of the Eel Race Road level crossing is expected to be one of the later stages of the project in Carrum.
