What’s happening?

We’re working on the track between Oakleigh and Westall stations. These track upgrades are essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network.

Works will commence Wednesday 16 April and will continue during the day and at night from 7pm and 7am. Works are expected to be completed by 7am, Monday 21 April.

The Springvale Level Crossing Removal will also be undertaking works during this time between Westall and Sandown Park stations.

 

How will this affect me?

Due to the nature of the works and machinery required, medium-high level construction noise may be experienced.

Where required, audible track safety measures may also be deployed to warn train drivers of work taking place on the line ahead.

To minimise construction impacts, the Metro team and our contractors will aim to reduce excessive noise and will make every effort to minimise disturbance to residents.

We will endeavour to minimise the amount of time required for night works at each location along the line.

Lighting towers will be installed near work sites and will be directed away from residents where possible.

While we will make every effort to complete works within these time frames, some activities may need to be rescheduled in the event of bad weather or other unavoidable circumstances.

We thank you in advance for your understanding during these works.

 

Road disruptions

The following level crossings will also be closed while we work on the track:

• Clayton Road Level Crossing (From 11pm, Wednesday 16 April – 4pm, Friday 18 April)

• Centre Road Level Crossing (From 8pm, Friday 18 April – 11pm, Sunday 20 April)

 

For further information, please contact PTV on 1800 800 007 (6am–midnight, 7 days).
