LXRP works on track LEVEL crossing removal crews have taken out the boom gates at Charman and Park roads in Cheltenham, as well as Balcombe Road in Mentone. Workers have been digging rail trenches as part of extended works on the line, which are scheduled to run until 27 July. An LXRP statement read that “around the clock works are taking place to allow crews to dig the

new rail trench, lower the rail line under Park and Charman roads in Cheltenham and Balcombe Road in Mentone and build two new stations, removing three dangerous and congested level crossings for good.” “The dangerous and congested Cheltenham level crossings held up thousands of motorists, with the Park Road boom gates down for an average of 48 minutes and the boom gates at Charman Road down for 35

minutes during weekday morning peak,” the statement read. Buses are replacing trains between Moorabbin and Mordialloc during the period that works are underway. Park Road is scheduled to reopen for motorists on 8 June, with Charman Road to reopen on 11 June. The revamped Cheltenham Station opens on 17 August, while Mentone Station reopens 3 August.
