Night works between Blackburn, Lilydale and Belgrave

9pm Friday 12 August to 4am Monday 15 August 

To improve the safety and efficiency of Melbourne’s metropolitan rail network, critical safety works will be undertaken along the Belgrave and Lilydale lines.

These critical safety works form part of Metro’s annual works program to maintain and renew the rail network.

What to expect:

  • maintenance works in and around the rail corridor near your property
  • heavy machinery in the works area, including special track machines, excavators, front end loaders and chainsaws
  • medium to high level construction noise during the set up and use of the heavy machinery rail grinding works that will cause a short-term immediate increase in noise once completed and
    will generally decrease over time
  • increased noise, dust and local traffic from workers accessing stored materials in the works areas or the rail corridor
  • traffic management in place when required, to assist people and vehicles moving through the area
  • the level crossing at Railway Avenue, Upper Ferntree Gully will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians from 9pm Friday 12 August to 6am Sunday 14 August.

Every effort will be made to complete works within these time frames and keep noise to a minimum.

The timing of these works may change depending on weather or unavoidable circumstances.
