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 open space in Carrum, 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.

No pedestrian access to Patterson River from Karrum Karrum Bridge, Carrum
While pedestrian access across Patterson River is now open, there is no pedestrian access from Karrum Karrum Bridge down to the river paths and under the bridge while works take place.
Carrum Station – Car park changes
Due to construction activities near Carrum Station, there will be partial car park closures during January and February 2019.
Frankston line – Buses replacing trains
While works take place as part of level crossing removal works in Carrum, buses will replace trains on the Frankston line between Mordialloc and Frankston from 9:15pm Friday 18 January until the last service on Sunday 20 January 2019.
Over the past few months there have been significant changes to the Frankston line, including the removal of the level crossings at Skye Road in Frankston and at Seaford Road in Seaford.
Major works will begin in 2019 to remove the level crossings in Carrum and create a more direct road network that will help to reduce travel times.
