Staged works are expected to start in early-2022. All works will follow approved noise and traffic management plans, and every effort will be made to minimise impacts. For questions about project works, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9326 3666.
As part of removing the level crossings, Western Power’s overhead transmission lines will be moved out of the rail corridor to make room for future works and the elevated rail infrastructure.
This will be delivered in two stages:
Stage One - underground transmission power and remove 10 large lattice towers north of Oats Street. These are the high voltage power lines on steel towers and steel poles.
Stage Two - options are being considered to consolidate transmission lines south of Oats Street Station, which may impact some distribution assets. Design work is currently underway.
