Melbourne, Victoria: Tenders invited for four major grade separation projects

29 Aug

Victoria premier Dr Denis Napthine was in Ormond, in Melbourne’s south-east suburbs on August 27th, 2014 to mark the invitation of tenders for the long-awaited grade separated replacement of the North Road level crossing in Ormond and at Burke Rd, Glen Iris, Blackburn Rd, Blackburn; and Main Rd, St Albans. The estimated cost of these grade separations is AUD659 million. Contracts will be let from early in 2015 with construction getting under way in mid-2015

There are concerns that these projects will founder following the State elections in November 2014 as the opposition has at present committed to these works going ahead as planned. This means that level crossing elimination through grade-separation will be an election issue for the second time around.
