11 October 2015 - 23 October 2015

We are undertaking renewal works on the Barry Road and Camp Road level crossings. These works are essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network..

These works are scheduled to take place, as follows:
• Preparation works: Each night 10pm to 6am Sunday 11 October until 6am Friday 16 October
• Major works: 10pm Friday 16 October until 6am Monday 19 October
• Clean up activities: Each night 10pm to 6am Monday 19 October until 6am Friday 23 October
Works are expected to be completed by 6am Friday 23 October.


Due to the nature of the works and heavy machinery required, including excavators and trucks, 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.

Traffic management will be in place to oversee the following road closures:
• Camp Rd Level Crossing, Broadmeadows: 11pm Friday 16th October – 1am Sunday 18th October
• Barry Rd Level Crossing, Coolaroo: 11pm Saturday 17th October – 1am Monday 19th October

Bus services and bus stops may be affected during this time, including the diversion of the 902 and 538 routes during the Camp Road level crossing closure and the diversion of the 531 and 532 routes during the Barry Road level crossing closure.

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.
