ARDEER residents will hold a rally on Saturday, calling on the Regional Rail Link Authority to address their concerns with the billion-dollar project.
In June they formed a group, "Fix the Links", and are circulating a petition.
They say the project is continuing without the RRLA addressing their noise, pollution and traffic congestion concerns.
During peak times, trains are expected to pass Ardeer and Deer Park every three minutes, with boom gates down 45 minutes each hour.
John Kondic, who lives next to Ardeer station, said he feared constant noise and pollution.
Fellow resident Maurice Sibelle said the project should be suspended until the concerns were addressed.
But authority spokeswoman Jo Mayall said the project would continue to comply with all relevant environmental legislation, standards and guidelines, including those on noise and air quality.
"We will continue to work with the community to keep them informed, listen to any concerns they may have and advise of opportunities to be involved in the project," she said.
The rally is at 1pm on Saturday at Ardeer station.
