14 January 2015 - 30 January 2015

What’s happening?

We’re undertaking track works on the Sandringham line.

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

These works will take place each night between 10pm and 6am, commencing Wednesday 14 January continuing through until Friday 30 January.

Works are expected to be completed by 6am Friday 30 January.

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 “Sandringham Track Work: Hampton – Sandringham station”.
