Minister visits Furlong Road level crossing to announce major summer works

Added: 22 December 2015

PTV CEO Gary Liddle, today joined Minister for Public Transport, Jacinta Allan and Minister for Roads Luke Donellan, at the Furlong Road level crossing to mark the start of the level crossing removal and outline a broader program of works that will take place across Victoria's public transport network this summer.

Removal works will ramp up at eight level crossings this summer as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project, which means there will be some service alterations to accommodate these improvements to the network.

Train services will be affected on the Frankston, Sunbury, Glen Waverley, Belgrave, Lilydale and Bendigo lines at various times in January, as well as nearby roads at level crossings.

The removal of the Burke Road level crossing and construction of a new tram stop will affect tram services on Route 72 between Glenferrie Road and Camberwell Junction, and construction of a new platform stop on the corner of Clarendon Street and Normanby Road will affect sections of routes 12, 96, 109 at different times.

A major upgrade to the Moonee Ponds Junction will require buses to replace trams for parts of routes 59 and 82 for 12 days between Saturday, 16 January and Wednesday, 27 January 2016. Upgrade works will also occur on the West Gate Bridge.
