Track and structural night works at Heyington Station.

Close

Service detail

What’s happening?

We’re undertaking track and structural works at Heyington Station.

These works are essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network.

Major works will commence 9:00pm Saturday 30 August and will continue through until 5:00am Monday 1 September.
Works are expected to be completed by 5:00am Monday 1 September.

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 machinery required, including welders and grinders, 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).
