Manchester Road – Level Crossing Building Project
Two new elevated stations built at Lilydale and Mooroolbark as part of the project. A new multi-deck car park will also be built at Mooroolbark Station, which contribute to doubling car parking to 900 spaces, making it easier for commuters to find a park.
More than 53,000 vehicles travel through these level crossings each day where the boom gates can be down for up to a quarter of the morning peak. There have been 13 crashes in the past 10 years, resulting in one fatal incident.
CDR provides geotechnical testing throughout both day and night works across the corridor to a number of contractors, including the principal contractor. These works required a number of contractors to work closely together within a high-profile location and to tight deadlines.
