What’s happening?

We’re clearing vegetation between Highett and Moorabbin stations.

This maintenance work is essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network.

Major vegetation clearing will be undertaken between 12am and 4am on Monday 2 February. We will endeavour to minimise the amount of time required for works at each location along the line.

How will this affect me?

Due to the nature of the works and machinery required, including chainsaws, 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.

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.

For further information, please contact PTV on 1800 800 007 (6am–midnight, 7 days) and quote “Vegetation clearing: Highett and Moorabbin stations”.
