Upgrade and closure of pedestrian/cyclist rail crossings
As part of the Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation project, four crossings were identified for the upgrade, including;
- Replacement of the Carlton Street/Johnstone Road crossing, with the new pedestrian and cyclist bridge east of the new station (opened December 2018);
- Upgrade of the Warradale Railway Station crossing, east of the station;
- Upgrade of the Seventh Avenue crossing, west of the Warradale Railway Station; and
- Upgrade of the Hove Railway Station Crossing, east of the station.
The project commenced work on the crossings from mid April.
The Carlton Street/Johnstone Road crossing was permanently closed from Monday, 8 April.
The Warradale and Hove crossings were temporarily closed for upgrade from Thursday, 4 April.
The Seventh Avenue crossing were temporarily closed for upgrade from Saturday, 13 April.
Warradale, Hove and Seventh Avenue crossings re-opened as upgraded activated crossings on in late-September.
During the upgrade works, the Warradale Railway Station subway crossing remained open, as was the crossing on the western side of the Hove Railway Station (Brighton Road).
Closure dates and detour signage was displayed at each crossing and traffic controllers were at the crossings during working hours to assist pedestrians and cyclists.
