Standard work hours are Monday to Saturday, 7am–7pm, and any out-of-hours works are indicated below. All works will follow approved noise and traffic management plans, and every effort will be made to minimise impacts. For questions about project works, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9326 3666.
Victoria Park temporary bus interchange (until October)
The temporary bus interchange will support train replacement services during the Armadale Line Shutdown.
Works require intermittent traffic management within the rail reserve and car park at Victoria Park Station, as well as on Duncan Street and Kitchener and Axon avenues.
Controlled traffic lights will be used to enable works to the Duncan Street-Kitchener Avenue and Axon Avenue-Kitchener Avenue intersections, and the installation of a temporary pedestrian crossing and additional kerbing on Kitchener Avenue.
There will be an increase in dust, noise and vibration.
Until mid-2025, entry into Kitchener Avenue from Axon Avenue will not be possible, with a turnaround bay on Axon Avenue to be installed.
The temporary bus interchange will operate from around four weeks prior to the shutdown starting, and there will be no disruption to station parking.
Building bus priority lanes (until November)
Roadworks on Shepperton and Welshpool roads, and Albany Highway will require intermittent traffic management and out-of-hours works from late-June.
Works include modifications for turning in and out of Welshpool Road at Norman and Forward streets, changes to turning lanes at the intersection of Shepperton Road, Welshpool Road and Albany Highway, and minor road widening.
These works enable the addition of 1.2km of bus priority lanes to support increased bus services during the Armadale Line Shutdown.
A new solid median on sections of Albany Highway and Shepperton Road will be installed to restrict right-turn vehicle movement and improve traffic flow.
To improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists a signalised pedestrian crossing will be installed north of Somerset Street.
The northbound lanes of Shepperton Road, between Welshpool Road and Oats Street, will be closed from 7pm on 29 September to 7pm on 1 October during 24/7 asphalting works. Detours will be in place and access to businesses will remain open.
For urgent enquiries during out-of-hours works please contact the site supervisor directly on 0448 395 795.

Power line relocation (until mid-2023)
There will be an increase in dust, noise and vibration due to road works required for underground cabling along Beatty Avenue, Swansea, Withnell and Somerset streets in East Victoria Park.
Traffic management will be in place during underground cabling and road resurfacing works. Temporary fencing will be installed along a section of John Bissett Reserve for use as a laydown area.
