Union Road and Mont Albert Road works
The level crossings at Union Road, Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Road, Mont Albert are being removed by lowering the rail line into an open trench beneath the roads with the new Union Station to be built between Surrey Hills and Mont Albert.
Major construction is well underway and the boom gates will be gone for good in 2023 – 2 years earlier than originally planned
Works will ramp up from July 2022 with an intense construction period that will involve lane and road closures on Mont Albert Road and Union Road, as well as a 2-week closure of the rail line.
Works have been carefully scheduled to ensure either Union or Mont Albert roads are open most of the time. Completing these works now will also allow less disruption in the lead-up to the important Christmas trading period at the end of the year.
