Upgrade and closure of pedestrian/cyclist rail crossings
As part of the Oaklands Crossing Grade Separation project, four of these identified crossings have been identified for upgrade including;
- Replacement of the Carlton Street/Johnstone Road crossing, with the new pedestrian and cyclist bridge east of the new station (open since 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 will commence work on the crossings from this week.
The Warradale and Hove crossings will be closed for upgrade from Thursday, 4 April.
The Carlton Street/Johnstone Road crossing will be permanently closed from Monday, 8 April.
The Seventh Avenue crossing will be closed for upgrade from Saturday, 13 April.
Warradale, Hove and Seventh Avenue crossings will re-open as upgraded activated crossings on Monday, 6 May, to coincide with the opening of the new Oaklands Railway Station.
During the upgrade works, the Warradale Railway Station subway crossing will remain open, as will the crossing on the western side of the Hove Railway Station (Brighton Road).
Closure dates and detour signage is displayed at each crossing and traffic controllers will be at the crossings during work hours to assist pedestrians and cyclists.
