From Thursday 29 January the Ringwood Bus Interchange will be temporarily relocated 200 metres to the west of its current location and up to 70 spaces in the car park will be reserved for project work.

The temporary bus interchange will be used for approximately six months while we upgrade and expand the existing bus interchange.

All buses and taxis will arrive and depart from the temporary interchange during this time.

Signage will be in place to guide bus and taxi passengers to the new area.

We thank you for your patience while we upgrade your station.

We thank you for your understanding undertake these essential works.

1 February 2015 - 13 February 2015

What’s happening?

We’re undertaking track works on the Belgrave and Lilydale lines.

These works are essential to ensure the ongoing safety and effi ciency of the network and will take place between Mitcham and Heatherdale stations.

These works will take place each night between 10pm and 6am, commencing Sunday 1 February continuing through until Friday 13 February.

Works are expected to be completed by 6am Friday 13 February.

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

How will this affect me?

Due to the nature of the works and heavy 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.

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 “Belgrave/Lilydale Track Work: Mitcham to Heatherdale”.
