(Rail Projects Victoria)

Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) is advising of upcoming out of hours works between Sunbury and Gisborne, and Calder Park and Sunbury, during scheduled closures of the Sunbury line from late May until June 29.

From 9pm, Friday June 3 to last service, Wednesday, June 29, a range of works in Sunbury and at Sunbury Station will take place.

RPV said during this time, 200 car spaces in Evans Street car park at the station will be closed, but that all-day park can be found in the Horne Street car park to the west of the station. RVP said all-day parking options are also available on surrounding streets.

“Site laydown areas have been established at 2 Shields Street, 35 Wilsons Lane and at the southern end of the Sunbury Station car park. These sites are being used for the delivery, storage and assembly of materials. These sites will be used out of hours as required,” RPV said.

RPV said the route for vehicles carrying materials would be along Holden Road, Calder Park; Old Calder Highway, Diggers Rest; Watsons Road, Diggers Rest; McDougall Road, Sunbury; Shields Street, Sunbury and Gap Road, Sunbury.

From May 27, at Clarkefield Station, testing will take place from 7am to 6pm, before out of hours works begin 9pm, Friday June 3 until last service, June 29.

Clarkefield Station carpark will be closed for 24 hours on Thursday, June 9 at 7pm and on Tuesday, June 14 at 7pm.

RPV warned of increased construction noise, the use of generator-powered lighting towers and more construction vehicles on the road.

Water will be used to minimise the spread of dust and traffic controllers will direct vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, RPV said.

“Construction machinery will transport materials and access the rail corridor via the following locations: Raes Road, Sunbury; Williamsons Road, Sunbury; Settlement Road, Sunbury and Clarkefield Station, Clarkefield,” RPV said.
