Level Crossing Removal Project

Construction Blitz Schools Update – Wednesday 3 November

Recently there have been further updates to the project timelines which now means Maroondah Hwy will re-open at 6am Tuesday 2 November 2021 (previously 3 November).

John St, Lilydale will open on 3 November and the two new train stations at Mooroolbark and Lilydale remain on track and will open to passengers on 17 November 2021.

While Maroondah Highway will re-open, speeds will be reduced to 40kph and the ongoing construction blitz continues to include the closure of Lilydale Station, and significant road and rail disruptions during this time. Students, staff and parents still need to allow additional time to travel to school while these works are carried out.

Our weekly works alert will be issued in the coming days and includes detail on the changes to roadworks completion dates along with maps of the pedestrian and vehicle detour routes that will be in place during this time and guidance for accessing these alternative routes.

We have attached a map of the pedestrian detour that will be in place for Maroondah Highway once it reopens tomorrow morning for your reference.

If you would like to discuss this information and/or arrange a briefing with a member of the project team, please contact us on 0407 575 865 or reply to this email.
