Djerring Trail closures

Some sections of the Djerring Trail shared user path between Westall Station and Sandown Park Station will be temporarily closed at various times during July and August.

The closures will be clearly signed with traffic management and detours in place as required.

Construction associated with the Metro Tunnel signalling project continues on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines between Caulfield Station and Sandown Park Station.

Trenching works for cabling needs to be undertaken in the vicinity of the trail. The path will be reinstated after the works.

Some work that needs to be undertaken while no trains are running will occur at night.

Riders should note that works will require the use of machinery including a non-destructive digging truck, excavator, dump truck, boring machine, hammer drill, concrete truck, light towers, generators, hand tools, cable winch, cable truck, hi-rail and light vehicles

A new Relocatable Equipment Building (REB) will be installed on Rayhur Street in Clayton South near the rail pedestrian crossing. The REB houses telecoms, signalling and power infrastructure.

There will be intermittent closures of some car parking at Westall Station throughout July and August and a number of car parking spaces along Newcomen Road (from Ericksen Street to Parsons Avenue) will be closed in stages until September 2021 to enable access to work zones.

There will also be temporary lane closures along Newcomen Road at times

The works will require removal of some trees in the rail corridor. The trees have been assessed by an arborist and designated as having low retention value
