The company will partner with Acciona Coleman Rail, WSP, Level Crossing Removal Authority and Metro Trains Melbourne to deliver the initial works package on the Frankston rail line, which comprises four level crossing removals in Carrum and Seaford, a new station and bridge at Carrum, and the relocation of the Carrum train storage facility to Kananook which will unlock the existing space for public use.
Craig Laslett, CEO of Engineering & Services at Lendlease said the company was proud to be contributing its combined expertise in engineering, design and placemaking to improve connectivity and amenity in the area.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the way people live, work and travel around the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne,” he said.
“This is more than a rail project – there will be a new architecturally designed train station, improved pedestrian links and new open spaces including a revitalised village square for Carrum. All of these improvements will make the beachside communities an even better place to live.”
Under the Program Alliance Model, successful delivery of the initial works packages will see the removal of further level crossings over the coming years.
Works are expected to begin in early 2018.
