Overview

UPDATE: This survey is now closed.

We’re removing 2 of Melbourne’s dangerous and congested level crossings and building a new premium station.

With early works underway and major works to start in 2022, we’re looking for community members to form the project’s Construction Liaison Group (CLG).

The CLG will provide local perspectives and insights throughout the construction phase of the project.

While it has no formal decision-making power, the CLG will ensure that local communities are informed on issues that may impact them during construction.

The CLG will:

  • work collaboratively with the project team to inform their networks and local community about construction-related project information
  • provide a local perspective on how to manage unavoidable construction impacts.

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

The CLG will focus on project construction matters. Meetings will not be a forum to discuss designs.

We expect members of the CLG to participate in meetings held every 8 to 10 weeks from late 2021 to late 2022 or early 2023.

Next steps

Once your nomination has been reviewed, we will email you to inform you of the outcome.
