2 August 2015

What’s happening?

We are clearing vegetation between Richmond and Hampton stations.These works are essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network.

These works will take place between 1am and 6am on Sunday 2 August.

We will endeavour to minimise the amount of time required for these works.

Works are expected to be completed by 6am Sunday 2 August.

How will this affect me?

Vegetation deemed to be within close proximity of track and overhead infrastructure will be trimmed and/or removed. Due to the nature of the works and heavy 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.

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.
