Sep 22 - Dec 14
  • Craigieburn

Platform works at Newmarket Station.

Close

Service detail

As part of an upgrade to Newmarket Station we will be installing new platform shelters, bins and seating.

The majority of the works will be undertaken during the day. For safety reasons it is necessary to carry out some of these works out-of-hours while trains are not running and there are no rail passengers at the station.

Works are expected to be complete by Mid-December.

How will this affect me?
Due to the nature of the works and machinery required, nearby residents may hear low – medium level construction noise from generators required for lighting and specialised machinery, reversing beepers, nailing and general work activity.

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 may 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.

For further information, please contact PTV on 1800 800 007 (6am–midnight, 7 days) and quote reference “Metro Newmarket Station”.

Oct 20 - Nov 21
  • Sandringham

We’re upgrading boundary fencing along Raglan Street in East St Kilda between Godfrey Avenue and Alma Road.

Close

Service detail

We’re upgrading boundary fencing along Raglan Street in East St Kilda between Godfrey Avenue and Alma Road as part of a strategy to minimise trespassing onto the rail corridor.

Fencing will be installed in accordance with outcomes of the community meeting held on 16 April 2014.

A 1800mm mesh fence will be constructed on the rail boundary to provide a permanent deterrent to people crossing the railway in this area.

The position of the fence on the rail boundary means that the existing fencing must first be removed and pruning or removal of trees and vegetation under the direction of a qualified arborist.

Replacement planting will be undertaken in some areas upon completion of works and every effort will be taken to avoid disturbing existing plantings by residents.

How will this affect me?
Work will be carried out on weekdays between 7.30am and 4.30pm from Monday 20 October to Friday 21 November and is expected to cause minimal disruption to nearby residents.

While every effort will be made to complete works within the specified timeframes, due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions there may be occasions where schedules change at
short notice.

We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and appreciate your patience whilst major improvements are made to Melbourne’s rail network.

For further information, please contact PTV on 1800 800 007 (6am–midnight, 7 days) and quote reference “Metro Fencing Upgrade”.

We’re undertaking track work between Victoria Park and West Richmond stations. This track upgrade is essential to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of the network.

Clean up activities and tamping/welding activities will take place from Monday 27 October – Sunday 9 November, the majority of these works will take place during the day, however some activities may be undertaken at night when trains are not running.

How will this affect me?

Due to the nature of the works and machinery required, low – medium 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.
