The Victorian Government is removing 20 dangerous level crossings and building 13 new stations as part of a $4 billion upgrade on the Frankston Line that will improve safety, reduce congestion, and allow more trains to run more often.

We’re removing two dangerous and congested level crossings at Neerim Road and Glen Huntly Road by lowering the rail line into a trench and building a new Glenhuntly Station.

As part of preparation works for major construction, underground power and signalling for the Frankston Line is being upgraded to improve the reliability of train services.

From Wednesday 1 June to Thursday 30 June, an underground bore will be installed, and trenching works will take place from Neerim Road along Queens Avenue to Lord Street and Derby Crescent. This is for the Combined Services Route (CSR) which carries rail signalling and electronics cabling.

Some of these works may need to be carried out at night. Where this is the case, we undertake noise modelling and are in direct contact with highly impacted residents individually.
