As of today all of the site offices have been transferred from the works depot site they have occupied adjacent to, and just south of Ginifer station to a site approx 1/2 Kilometer north along the line towards St Albans adjacent to Kingsley streetFurlong Road level crossing closed yesterday and is due to remain closed until April 24th .Work continues out here in the west as well.Further update to the Main Road St Albans projectThe CEO of Watergardens Shopping Centre appeared to be very enthusiastic about plans to remove the crossing - maybe they might even foot some of the bill.If he's enthusiastic, it's because he won't be picking up the tab.
Sunbury line to be closed to all trains between Sunshine and Sunbury from January 2nd to January 9th inclusive with bustitution occurring .
Main Road St Albans to be closed to vehicular traffic from January 2nd to the 22nd inclusive for major works .
Furlong Road Level Crossing will be closed from 8 pm Thursday 18th February to 5 am Monday 22nd February .
The station car park on the western side of the line adjacent to the station will be closed at this time . This is the larger of the two car parks at Ginifer .The car park on the Eastern side of the line is being enlarged to cater for the increase in cars using this car park .Unfortunately this WILL make access to the station more tedious for the majority of motorists who drive to the station as they currently use the western side car park .
This is being done to enable major excavation works to begin preparatory to lowering the line as the line is to go through what is now the car park area .
There will be a further closure in March / April which will be to enable the construction of the road bridge over the line at Furlong Road .
The Main Road Level Crossing project in St Albans is also progressing with the bridge being installed ( with it`s ancillary works ) during the shutdown of the level crossing that occupied 19 days in January
Work has begun excavating under the line to enable the insertion of the bridge decking to carry the road over the tracks when the line has been lowered sufficiently .
Ginifer station car parking has been dramatically altered to allow the works to continue as well but the station remains open as in St Albans and the there are no planned shutdowns to the trains that I am aware of .
Work is also continuing at Stans in excavating the trench for the tracks under Main Road and adjacent to St Albans Station
This seems to be to make room to enable further excavation of the Rail cutting to continue north from Furlong road .
The offices were also on the site for the new Ginifer station so .moving them will free up room for construction to commence on this as well .
