Works are underway at Calder Park as part of the Sunbury Line Upgrade.
Site establishment and preparatory works
At Calder Park, we will be expanding train stabling facilities to fit the longer, more modern trains. These facilities are used to maintain and store trains when not in service.
Surveying of existing land, property and signalling infrastructure will help inform careful design and planning of future construction.
We are performing preparatory earthworks to ready the rail corridor for new infrastructure. This includes clearing the ground within the construction area, delivering materials, drainage, and service proving to confirm the location of underground services.
A temporary construction site with offices for staff has been installed next to the rail corridor near Holden Road, Calder Park. It will store materials, worker amenities, and include construction vehicle parking for the duration of Sunbury Line Upgrade works.
Construction will cause low to medium levels of noise and vibration, and an increase of trucks travelling on local roads to access the site from Holden and Victoria Road. Traffic controllers will assist with vehicle and pedestrian movements around the site.
At times, out of hours works and deliveries may occur. Advance notification will be provided to local residents ahead of all out of hours construction activities.
Major construction around Calder Park will begin in March 2020.
Established construction sites in Calder Park will be active for the duration of works.
We will work closely with residents, businesses and the local community to manage impacts from construction.
Community relations staff are also on call 24/7 to answer any questions, concerns and complaints.
Key environmental requirements for the project includes the preparation of a Growling Grass Frog Conservation Management Plan. These actions ensure the species and habitat is protected in line with previous project stages and requirements.
