UPDATE: NIGHT AND DAY WORKS IN THE RAIL CORRIDOR AT CROYDON STATION

As part of the Torrens Rail to River Torrens Project, major works are continuing in the rail corridor at Croydon Station, Croydon to 15 January 2018, weather permitting.

Works update

Wherever possible, the following works will be undertaken as day works. However, due to the nature of the works, some intermittent night works wil be required and the schedule is subject to change. The Community Team will endeavour to provide advance notice of any works that may potentially impact residents.

Monday 23 October and Tuesday 24 October 2017 (day and intermittent night works):

  • Tamping works west of Croydon Station have been extended due to the unforeseen requirement to install new sleepers in the rail corridor at this location.
  • Due to the proximity of heavy machinery, pedestrian access at the Queen Street level crossing may be temporarily unavailable for short periods of time during these works. At these times, onsite traffic controllers will either request that pedestrians wait to cross, or direct them to the Garnet Street crossing.

Other day and intermittent night works being undertaken this week:

  • Track works west of Croydon Station west of Croydon Station to install new sleepers/track
  • Stressing, clipping and welding of the new track
  • Installation of precast concrete L walls for construction of new Croydon Station (this will now commence from Thursday 26 October 2017 for 2-5 days)

Equipment
During these works a variety of equipment will be used including an excavator, trucks, compaction equipment, hand tools and
a tamper. Lighting towers will also be used in operation during night works.
