18 July 2015 - 10 August 2015

As part of the Ringwood Station and Interchange Upgrade project, we will be undertaking overnight works commencing after the last train on Saturday 18 July continuing each night, until Sunday night 9 August.

The works are being undertaken at night so they can be safely carried out while trains are not running.

The majority of works will be undertaken on the station platforms. Some work will also be undertaken in the station car park on Station Street and in the new bus interchange on Maroondah Highway.

Residents living close to Ringwood Station may hear some noise while the overnight works are undertaken. Our work crews have been instructed to be mindful of residents and to minimise noise and intrusive lighting, where possible.

We thank you for your patience while we upgrade Ringwood Station. For more information about the project please visit ptv.vic.gov.au/ringwoodupgrade, call 1800 800 007 (6am – midnight) or email ringwoodupgrade@roads.vic.gov.au.
