The Level Crossing Removal Authority's website has been updated once again with a new consultation space as well as new renders of the proposed station rebuilds.

Similarly a series of videos have been uploaded in a 'meet the experts' section of the website with members of the team working on different aspects of the project: acoustics, landscaping, urban design and construction.

As with Sunday's article, select a title to go to the specific consultation page.

Comment

It appears that Carnegie and Clayton Station are set to receive escalators and lifts and Murrumbeena, Hughesdale and Noble Park will have stairs and lifts. The Carnegie and Murrumbeena diagrams highlight how narrow the corridor is and should expansion from two to four tracks be needed in future, significant property acquisition will be required.

At both Carnegie and Murrumbeena bus stops have been given pride of place right out the front of the station ticket barriers. Both stations have two bus routes running past the station at present - Hughesdale's bus bays are located just beyond the station entrance - the question must be asked: will all these Chadstone-centric bus routes see frequency increases?

The physical infrastructure to enhance intermodal connectivity at Clayton is present however whether bus frequencies are increased thus reducing reliance on car parking in the area remains to be seen.

What do you think?
