New and upgraded rail infrastructure across Melbourne

CPB Contractors, with its Alliance partners, has completed four level crossing removals and is removing another nine crossings as part of the Victorian Government’s program to remove 50 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne.

The two project packages include rebuilding eight stations, upgrading platform infrastructure and rail systems, laying new track and managing complex interfaces between construction, rail operations and live traffic. The projects are scheduled to be completed in 2018. 

Our Alliance brings strong capabilities and will ensure the project achieves its objectives to deliver improved a safer and faster rail network.

Works package: Caulfield to Dandenong

CPB Contractors was awarded an Alliance contract with the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) to design and construct the Level Crossing Removal Project: Caulfield to Dandenong in Melbourne in April 2016.

The project will remove nine level crossings between Caulfield and Dandenong in Melbourne’s south‐eastern suburbs, as well as rebuild five railway stations. Works will be completed in 2018.

Alliance participants included Lendlease, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, Aurecon, LXRA and Metro Trains Melbourne.

Works package: Furlong and Main roads in St Albans, Heatherdale Road in Mitcham & Blackburn Road in Blackburn

CPB Contractors was awarded an Alliance contract with the Victorian Government to design and construct four of Melbourne’s level crossing removals in September 2015.

Alliance participants include Leighton Contractors, Aurecon and Hyder Consulting with VicRoads, Public Transport Victoria and Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM).

The project will remove level crossings at Furlong and Main roads in St Albans, Heatherdale Rd in Mitcham and Blackburn Rd in Blackburn.

At each location, the rail line will be lowered under the road. St Albans, Ginifer and Heatherdale stations will be re‐built with platforms below street level and Blackburn Station will be upgraded.

Works will begin at Main Road and Furlong Road in a matter of weeks and will be completed in 2017. The removal of Heatherdale and Blackburn Road level crossings will subsequently commence and take 12 to 18 months to complete.
