CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

Works are about to ramp up as we get on with the job of removing the level crossing at Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing and building a road bridge and pedestrian overpass over the rail line.

Major construction will begin in the coming months and we’re looking for community members to form a Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG).

The SLG provides local perspectives and insights throughout the construction phase of the project.

While it has no formal decision-making power, the purpose of the SLG is to ensure that local communities have a voice on issues that may impact them during construction.

The SLG will assist the project team by providing:

  • a local perspective, particularly in relation to minimising construction impacts on the community
  • information to the community about the project and its construction
  • local knowledge to discussions about the construction program.

The SLG will consist of community members who represent the views and interests of residents, business owners and community.
