Victoria’s Caulfield to Dandenong level crossing removal project has been named a finalist in the 2018 Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Awards Built Environment category.
The project is a large-scale upgrade to one of Melbourne’s busiest rail corridors and is being undertaken by Lendlease, CPB Contractors, WSP, Aurecon, Level Crossing Removal Authority and Metro Trains Melbourne.
It involves the construction of five new stations as well as nine level crossing removals, creating renewed village centres at Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale, Clayton and Noble Park, as well as delivering a greenfields linear parkland for local communities.
The project is up against two other sustainable projects in the built environment, including: the Bendigo Soldiers Memorial Institute for an addition built to Passive House standards and RMIT in the CBD for its Sustainable Urban Precincts Program.
The 2018 Premier’s Sustainability Awards have been selected in ten categories, which recognise individuals, communities, organisations and businesses that are driving a sustainable future in Victoria.
Winners will be announced at the Premier’s Sustainability Awards gala dinner at The Forum in Melbourne on Thursday 11 October.
The Premier will also personally select two overall winners of the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award and the Premier’s Recognition Award, to be announced at the ceremony.
