22 September 2014 - 14 December 2014

As part of an upgrade to Newmarket Station we will be installing new platform shelters, bins and seating.

The majority of the works will be undertaken during the day. For safety reasons it is necessary to carry out some of these works out-of-hours while trains are not running and there are no rail passengers at the station.

Works are expected to be complete by Mid-December.

How will this affect me?
Due to the nature of the works and machinery required, nearby residents may hear low – medium level construction noise from generators required for lighting and specialised machinery, reversing beepers, nailing and general work activity.

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.

Lighting towers may 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.

For further information, please contact PTV on 1800 800 007 (6am–midnight, 7 days) and quote reference “Metro Newmarket Station”.
