CARNEGIE rail commuters will need to make alternative travel plans from January 23, with the station closing for seven weeks.
Level Crossing Removal Authority chief executive Kevin Devlin said Carnegie Railway Station would be closed from January 23 to March 13 to allow sky rail foundation works to be done.
The project will eventually see nine level crossings removed, including that at Koornang Rd, and five stations rebuilt along the Cranbourne/Pakenham line.
“Carnegie residents will soon benefit from a better station with improved, modern facilities that connect people with the vibrant area around the station,” Mr Devlin said.
The works will finish a week ahead of schedule, he said.
“We’ve reviewed our program and have managed to shorted the duration of these foundation works, which is a great outcome for local commuters,” Mr Devlin said.
During the closure, trains on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines will run express between Caulfield and Murrumbeena and buses will run between these stations for passengers travelling to or from Carnegie.
A temporary station would be built to allow passengers to continue catching trains from Carnegie from March 13, Mr Devlin said.
“We thank locals for their patience and ask everyone to bear with us while we complete these
important works, which pave the way for a vastly improved Carnegie Station precinct in the future,” he said.
